I am using Notepad++ FTP plugin (NppFtp) to remotely edit the files. However, it displays hidden files and directories too (those starting with .). I have tried to change this behavior by going to Profile Settings -> FTP Misc. -> changing LIST parameters to -l only, but it does not seem to have an effect.

How can I accomplish it?

  • Is the server you're connecting to Windows? If so, files with leading dots are not considered hidden . . . – ernie Aug 13 '13 at 23:41
  • No, it's Linux. – Muhammad Waqar Aug 14 '13 at 4:41

NppFTP plugin hasn't an option to hide files with lead dot. Currently no.
