In Simplicity Studio V4, when a device or kit is connected, the Getting Started, Documentation, Compatible Tools, and Resources panes are automatically populated with any relevant collateral.

However, if you do not have a kit or part detected within Simplicity Studio, these panes will be empty.

In order to populate these panes with documentation related to a kit or part that you are interested in, navigate to the "Solutions" view (left of the screen, second tab), add a New Solution, and then add the device of your choosing to this solution. The documentation will now be available.
