Keeping hidden files hidden, how can I see content inside hidden directories using Finder tags.
I can assign a tag to directory
A, but it does not show in Finder when I list all tag-tagged content.
.hidden_directory/ ├── A │ ├── a │ │ └── 1.0 │ │ ├── bin │ │ │ └── abc ...
Is this possible?
EDIT: I was able to successfully retrieve any content inside directories like
Documents, even if those directories have been deliberately hidden via
chflags hidden <FILENAME>.
This is not too bad, but it would be useful if I could add tags to some of the contents inside
.directories to quickly access them via the GUI, but without turning hidden files on.
EDIT2: This could help some people, but it's not quite exactly what I want to accomplish.
EDIT3: The first answer here also helps, but I was hoping I could use tags instead of dragging a directory to the sidebar.
