I browsed the faq and the community, but I couldn't find out, how to view and edit .htaccess files with Aptana Studio.

I'm working on a Max OS X SnowLeopard operating system and the .* files are normally hidden.

Maybe that's the reason why I can't see / edit them?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mario

    Ok, there is a way to show the hidden files and being able to edit them then.

    Inside the file/project explorer click on the drop down arrow on the upper right and then select "Customize View...". Uncheck the ". files" and apply. You will see now all . files in the file/project explorer.

    What I miss is to be able to hide the . files I don't want to see, as .project etc. I there a way to handle this? Or even better, a possibility to hide all . files, except .htaccess. Is that possible?

    Cheers, Mario

    Currently the ability to filter File View by specific pattern is missing in 2.0. We're looking to add it in the upcoming release.

    Surely there is a way to add our own filters. Anyone?

    Yes you can by writing a small custom plugin of your own and using the extension point org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent. I attached an example plugin which implements .project filtering and its source.
