I need to use Automator to backup some of config files in my Mac. But I don't know how to get a hidden file in the file browser dialog. I chose "Get Specified Finder Items" task then click Add, but the file browser didn't show the hidden files I want to select.

How can I get the hidden files I need?

Thank you and have a good day!


Press Cmd-Shift-. in the file dialog to show hidden files.
