It should be possible to exclude certain file types. For instance, my project contains *.moc files (Qt system), and this should never be open. Hence, this "polutes" the file list.

A custom file mask to exclude files, is what I ask for. Thanks.

You can exclude items from the file list. Have a look at the screen shot here:

Thanks for your answer, but the interest of "Open File in solution" is SPEED. Hence if you need to type the filter everytime you open the box, this is definitly counter productive. Hence I reiterate my request for a "global filter" :-)
Thanks

I am wary of hiding anything by default, even files that "no one ever edits", since experience indicates someone edits every type of file by hand

What percentage of your files have moc files? When I worked with Qt at my last job most of the code base had no moc files at all.

The filter is remembered in the OFIW dialog, so you can edit the filter, just replacing the bit you need to change.

What percentage of files have moc files?
My solution has several sub-projects (8) based on the same source files. Hence there are 8 times more .moc files than .cpp/h files. Hence it is confusing in the select box. Ok, not all source file have a moc. Nevertheless, it's about 300 files I never need in "Open File in solution", and this is growing.

That is quite a lot of moc files. I have put in a feature request to see what our developers make of it:

Your new feature works great. There is just a typo in your documentation:
https://www.wholetomato.com/features/whats-new.asp#2283

Your picture should show "-.moc_" and not ".moc_" ;)

On a personal note, I can't believe I asked for this feature 9 years ago, time is going by so quickly :(

But on another hand, it is very nice that you still track feature requests such a long time after they have been emitted!

Well spotted, thank you. Good to know someone does read the documentation after all

Sorry the feature took so long to add, it's just we get a steady stream of feature requests and bug reports, so have to prioritise somehow. This is a very useful feature, but only in some situations.
