Is in-depthness commonly used as a word? If so, is it spelled correctly (all spell checkers I tried do not recognize it as a word)? If not, is there a word describing the same idea of something being in-depth?

An example sentence would be:

The in-depthness of the documentation was great, as it helped in understanding the product.

  • ... Yes, and 'thorough' is listed as a synonym for 'in-depth'. +1 for 'commenting' rather than 'answering'. – Edwin Ashworth Mar 29 '16 at 12:42

    ...what's wrong with 'depth'? – John Clifford Mar 29 '16 at 12:43

"Depth" and "thoroughness" could be used. So could "comprehensiveness", although there is a mental image of breadth rather than depth.
