Description kalle1 2015-08-29 10:37:56 UTC
The global "Ignored files pattern" in `Tools -> Options -> Miscellaneous -> Files` is specified as one regular expression (default is 


). An unexperienced or impatient user might well condensate some brain cells before figuring out a simple change, like including `\..*` files. It'd be better if there was a list of regular expressions which would also allow to specify the default regular expression for users who like the long version.
