When I tried to set my Terminal color by importing a color scheme stored in
~/Dropbox/.personal/myColor.Terminal, it didn't display the hidden directories, including
~/Dropbox/.personal (and other files and directories I store to my Dropbox root, such as
Why does this not display it? I always show those hidden directories by setting the
AppleShowAllFiles property in
com.apple.finder to 1.
It's just the Terminal color setting import pane that I recognize to NOT be displayed - in other words, I've seen those hidden files everywhere on my daily use.
I can just move the color scheme file temporarily to import it on my Terminal - just want to know why such incongruity occurs.
I use the latest version of OS X Mavericks. Any feedbacks would be appreciated.
I got that it's not only Terminal, but it can be applied to other applications as well, on which when you do
Open Files or
Import or similar operations, most applications don't display those hidden files. As far as I know, only MacVim has a checkbox option to open those hidden files.
