How do I prevent a directory from being visible or indexable in the project?

Suppose there is a directory that has a lot of files that are not code that I do not want to show up in Clion.

How do I go about removing them? It's perturbing that I can't exclude it from the workspace somehow.

Hi Jeremy.

Please specify the files and folders, which you want to be ignored by CLion in the 'Ignore files and folders' field (Preferences (Settings) | Editor | File Types). You can find out more information in our web help: https://www.jetbrains.com/clion/help/file-types.html. Does that help?

We have also implemented 'Mark Directory As | Excluded' action (CPP-4443) in the upcoming 1.5 version. Stay tuned for the announcements in the blog.

Thanks that seemed to work. The option was a bit hard to find at first.
