For most day to day uses it's helpful to hide system files and config files from Sublime Text 2 via the file_exclude_patterns and folder_exclude_patterns, but every so often I'll need to make a quick change in those files. Is there anyway to temporarily show those files so I can access them in the sidebar and goto anything (cmd-p) without having to edit my settings file?

You could use projects to do this. Have Project_A and a Project_A_Config. Then you can switch between them without the clutter. – NonlinearFruit Aug 16 '15 at 13:31
