Flex Config Temporary Files

Ok hopefully this will be the last of my rants for the day.

Everytime I compile a flex module it creates a MODULENAME_temp_flex_config.xml file. I get that. What I dont get is why if it is generated everytime
and only temporary why isnt it automatically deleted?

Is there a way to have these deleted? How about have them all generate into a config folder? Maybe I can just hide *_temp_flex_config.xml from my project panel?
Any of these possible? My project has a lof of modules and this starts to get out of hand pretty quick.

thanks,

The file is not deleted to be able to look what was going on during compilation.
Keeping all of them in a project root folder is really not a good thing, there's a request for that: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-51923
Unfortunately there's no way to get them out from Project view.

Ok, I agree even putting them into a different folder would help.

Honstly it would be best to not have to see them at all, with the option somewhere to generate the XML to see what is happeneing.

Is there no filter system or plugin that would accomplish this in IntelliJ. Someway to ignore or filter files in the project view?
just say *_temp_flex_config.xml is hidden.

There is a filter in Settings (Ctrl+Alt+S) | File Types | Ignore files and folders. But it doesn't work for known file types like XML.

Gotcha.

Ok well looks like I will just deal with this for a while.

There are plans to move.hide these files at somepoint?
