Hide files that start with . but show other hidden files?

Is there a way to hide all files / folders that starts with a . but show all other hidden files / folders?
Files / folders that starts with . a generally meant to be hidden, but other thing would be nice to always be able to see.


You can hide any patterns you want. If you want .* to be hidden everywhere, Preferences / Folders / Global Filters is the place to do it.

(desktop.ini|thumbs.db|ehthumbs_vista.db) are hidden by default.

(desktop.ini|thumbs.db|ehthumbs_vista.db|.*) would keep that and also hide things starting with a dot.

Thanks for your (ultra)fast reply.
Fantastic, it works!

Thanks again
