The UI and functionality around how you configure files/directories to be ignored by VCS has been bugging me for a long time in IDEA. You can't use Ant style paths, you have to exclude things on a directory by directory basis. If you have a big project with modules that share identical layouts, this is a huge pain. Also, IDEA doesn't even sort the entries you've already added in a meaningful way. Can anybody look at the screenshot attached to this bug and say this is good usability? http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-63253 Does this not bug anyone else?
