    Hi jason, if u want to remove all the .svn folder then u might want to read this
    once removed all the .svn folder, just do a refresh at your aptana and you wont see any .svn folder again.

    Hey I need abit of help here…
    I can hide *most* .svn folders but some of them keep showing up in the folder structure in Aptana…

    I tried to delete the affected folders containing the ‘bad’ .svn folders and re-checking them out but that didn’t help…..

    Anyone have a clue what’s going on?

    And not only the svn files/folders, but also all the hidden files actually (like .htaccess and so on…)

    Unfortunately, this will also hide you .htaccess file !
