Hidden files showing up in viewer
« on: May 30, 2008, 12:36:13 PM »
Every now and then I get 15 to 20 hidden files that show up as images in the viewer.  Not a huge deal just a nuisance. Any Ideas??

Just some more files that Apple is adding to the root of volumes nowadays.  I'll see if I can add some code to ignore them.

EDIT: I don't see any of those files on my system and your folder is not a root volume.  We don't show hidden files (those that have the Invisible bit set) in Contact Sheets so while the Finder may be hiding them from you, they must not have the Invisible bit set.  I would like to see the output of the following command of your folder in the Terminal:

ls -alf

If you don't understand what I am asking you to do, please click on my name to the left of this message and then click on the 'personal message' link.  Give me your phone number and a best time to call and I'll step you through it.
