Title: file filters help
Post by: dbbd on December 15, 2015, 02:42:17 pm
In the open file pane I get the list of files that match the prefix I type.
This list includes files ending with .contrib (created by clearcase).
I cannot figure out where and how to define the file filter that will stop showing me these files.

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't think there's a setting or configuration variable that allows global exclusion of a particular file type from file lists--presumably it's possible to make a custom version of the file listing function(s) to do this.
The only work-around I can see is to use Options-->File Options-->Files of Type Filters, specify your own global File Type list type that includes all the types you need, and place it first on the list.

There isn't an exclude file spec yet. Good idea though.
