It seems a feature I've requested actually exists which is added in 5.5.0.0-b as stated in the release notes

 

http://www.thebrain.com/site/personalbrain/download/PB5.5%20Release%20Notes.pdf:

More preferences added

§  Hide temporary and hidden files in Thought folders (default: true)

 

But that option/checkbox when is checked (which is by default) doesn't hide HIDDEN attachments (files in thought folders).

 

Feature requests  before discovering it's a bug:

Btw, I confirm again that this is a bug! At least on 5.5.0.8-b it doesn't function!

As of 5.5.0.9-b it still doesn't function.

As of 5.5.1.0, this bug is still present.

b4l4nc3r, Thanks for posting. This feature is working correctly.

If you place a file which has the hidden attribute set on it, or a file which begins with a ".', "~" or "$' into the Thought folder of a Thought, it will not show up in the Properties and Attachments of that Thought when "Hide temporary files in Thought folders" is set in Options > Preferences > Advanced (Tab).

Best regards,
Moe

Moe,

I've found the steps to reproduce the bug-symptom.

It hides the HIDDEN-files IF they're hidden BEFORE they're loaded by the PB Thought! BUT NOT after. So hiding an attachment after it's already visible in a Thought won't result in hiding it, not even after a PB restart. This is true for 5.5.1.2-b too.

Best Regards,
...

edited: corrected the file-set in matter, as this applies only to hidden-file scenario I've described above, which doesn't apply to temps which normally would be spotted by their file-name before they're loaded. I've not checked that, nor I'm I interested in that scenario as it won't be in the way.

BTW, the symptom also occurs if the hidden-file attachments are the result of a file-import, but that was during an earlier release (don't remember the number). However, I believe that you guys know what to do in any case.
