I would like my Open File selector to be showing hidden files. I am not sure if the same Open File module is shared among many applications that use it or each app has its own. The specific app I have in mind with which I would like to enable this functionality is
Sublime Text 2. However, I do NOT want the
Finder to be showing hidden files.
What I tried to do is execute
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder
Terminal but that changed it only in the Finder and not in the Open File selector for Sublime (exactly the opposite of what I was trying to accomplish).
