Can't hide meta.xml files like I used to

Issue #1043 resolved
Luke Kozakewycz created an issue

The option in the dropdown menu for hiding meta.xml files seems to have stopped working for some reason. I permanently have the meta.xml files showing can't hide them at all.

That's it really.

    Luke, do you see any errors in the log? I'm not aware of anything that might have changed anytime recently to break this, and I haven't heard about it from anyone else...this is the type of thing I'd imagine would raise quite a stir if it was happening broadly. My guess is that something is going awry for you, so let's figure out what that is and hopefully get it resolved for you.

    Ah, I have figured out what the problem is.

    The IDE hides meta xml files inside force-app/main/default/.... but not when you have a different structure with folders like this:




    and then other apps included using CI tools like:

    Ah. I have another story right now on making the IDE work better with non-standard (but completely valid) directory structures. I'll make sure to take this one into account while working on that. Thanks for clarifying!

    Scott, do you know if these updates will include fixes a whole load of issues I'm having with saving files in other directories as well? Or is that a SFDX issue? Can't seem to save files that are not in the default directory.

    Luke, I'd have to see an example, but in general IC just runs an sfdx force:source:push to save to the server. It doesn't actually do any real work. You could enable debug logging for SFDX as documented here:

    and see what's going on under the hood. That should tell you whether it's IC or SFDX. If the former, definitely let me know.

    This should be resolved completely in (along with a ton of other issues around flexible project structure). Please let me know if not.
