Why doesn’t the system file open dialog follow the Windows system preference (hide or show hidden files), like Reaper and Cubase?
The reason I ask is because I nearly always right-click - insert files to track, using the system file open dialog. I don’t use the Wavelab file browser because it can’t search subfolders, and the Windows system file-open dialog can. i can be returned a list of all the wav files in multiple subfolders within a folder and add them all at once to a track or tracks. It’s an easy method if you have many files in many different folders and you want to load them all to one montage in one step. I simply type .wav in the system file open search box and I’m presented with a list of all of the files.
But I often get Pro Tools Mac files with 1k additional hidden .wav files that I don’t want in the found list. So I can’t just ctrl-a Select All with Wavelab. (Actually I can but I then have to de-select those 1k files to make the file load work).
Is this something that could be considered for a change? Follow the system user pref to hide or show hidden files?
