After reading Paulo Andrade: Xcode: Search Scopes article I created the scopes in my local machine; but figured that wouldn't be enough.

Thus I decided to find where Xcode stores said information; which is a pretty straight forward location:

/Users/<username>/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/IDEDocumentationWindow.xcuserstate

This gist contain the exact same scopes defined by Paulo; if you haven't defined any custom ones just copy the plist and drop it in the location above; if you have scopes you'll have to copy the items from within the <array> tags and add them to your <array of scopes.
