Hello jim,

You can add a pattern like ".*" (or a more specific one if you prefer) to
Settings | File Types | Files and Folders to Ignore.

Can someone tell me how to hide hidden folders and files (preceded by
'.') in Project view?

Because he probably shares the project with Eclipseans, who tend to check in .classpath and .project files?

If you want IDEA to completely ignore all files with names starting with a period, then you open up IDE Settings > File Types, and try adding .* to the list of "Ignored files and folders".
