In my documentation i have some exemples blocs.

When i create doc, i have a lot of warning like this :

WARN | Invalid [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] reference found near My_Class_File.h@57, unknown object!

this line is an exemple bloc of code.

i have test with markdown notation ( tabs spaces) and but the warning are alway here.

It's probably due to appledoc noticing [NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] in comments and thinking it's a cross reference to a class NSNotificationCenter but that class isn't part of the project (obviously as it's framework class :). To overcome, switch to explicit cross references mode. It will require embedding "wanted" cross references into '<' and '>' (or your custom strings if you'd use --crossref-format), but it'll also prevent warnings from happening.

Sure, it's one of the tradeoffs between simplicity and control...
