The exclude filter rule failure

Everything is a great tool. I like it.
I'm a programmer, I writes code under version control system, etc Subversion, so I add some exclude filter :

Type: exclude
Filter:
.svn
*.svn
*.svn*
^\.svn$
Apply to :
Files and Folders

but folders named .svn still been list in the search result list. Is here something I missed? thank you.

I am aware of the issue with the exclude list not working as intended.

This should be fixed for the next release of "Everything".

To work around the problem:

Try adding the following two filters:

Type: Exclude.
Filter:

Code: Select all

*\.svn\*
Apply to: Files and folders.

Type: Exclude.
Filter:

Code: Select all

.svn
Apply to: folders only.
