Hidden Files not Shown in Open Dialog

Reported by Devin Walters | November 11th, 2009 @ 06:27 PM | in 0.8

When GitX opens up it asks you to browse for the repository. If you version control your .emacs.d/ folder or any other hidden dotfiles directory, you will be unable to open this directory using the Open dialog even if you have OSX showing hidden files and folders.

    Hm, while this is true, I'm not a fan of enabling hidden files by default.

    First of all, showing hidden files seems to the exception and not that many people do it. Those who need to access hidden files probably use other ways anyway. Some possibilities:

    1. Use 'gitx' from the terminal.
    2. Use Command-Shift-G in the 'Open' dialog to enter a path.

    I'm marking this 'invalid' unless you have objections. I too have git repos which are dotfiles (.config.git), but I rarely use the 'Open' dialog anyway.
