How to ignore files from VCS?

I know, it's Settings -> Version Control -> Ignored Files, but whatever I do, my changed files aren't moved to the 'Ignored Files' changelist. The only files in the 'Ignored Changelist' are those already ignored from the default settings, i.e. the *.iws file. But I also want to ignore all module files, but entering a filemask of *.iml doesn't change anything. Not even by adding an explicit file path this file is moved to the 'Ignore Files' changelist. Anybody got this working?

Hello Martin,

"Ignored Files" actually shows files which aren't added to the VCS. If your
.iml file is already added to the VCS, it will be shown according to its
file status even if you've added it to the Ignored Files list.

you can add specific files or patterns to the ignored list by clicking Changes>Configure Ignored Files on the Changes tool panel, I think this is what you're looking for
