A shortcut to reach hidden folders in Open/Save dialogs
Authored by: jbc on Aug 12, '04 12:38:07PM

I've always kept a folder in my home directory that contains non-hidden symlinks to the base hidden BSD folders (call it "~/bsd" or "~/admin", for example). Found when adding it to the Sidebar in Panther that this folder not only gave me quick access to hidden folders in the Finder, but in Open/Save dialogs as well.

Same basic idea, but adds no hidden folders to the Sidebar and reduces Sidebar clutter a bit.
