Well, there you go. That is by design. Ignores are to ignore UNVERSIONED stuff. If it is already versioned then the ignore don't do anything.

Your best bet is to add those folders to the TSVN ignore change list.

Or, get them out of svn... there shouldn't be any reason to have the obj and bin folders versioned.

I understand that impression from the provided screen capture. But, no, all of those folders are versioned despite the missing folder icons in the screen capture.

I wrote just after loading v.1.6.3 and it killed my icons for a while. They're back now.

Please, seriously, my ignore masks do absolutely nothing on versioned folders and files.

Just to quickly verify... these folders are ALL unversioned right?

I have written about this numerous times and keep waiting for a fix in a subsequent version. I can't believe that all Windows users aren't just screaming about it.

It doesn't matter if I specify file/folder names to ignore in the Global Ignore list or in the Project Properties window, SVN simply ignores my ignore masks. This is EXTREMELY frustrating because I can't simply click a folder and submit it - I have to manually inspect the list of thousands of file and folder names to find the few that I truly do want to submit.

I have tried countless revisions of my ignore mask pattern. Here's my latest:

*.o *.lo *.la #*# .*.rej *.rej .*~ *~ .#* .DS_Store *.sqlsuo *.suo [Rr]elease [Dd]ebug [Bb]in [Oo]bj [Bb]ackup *.dll *.pdb [Tt]humbs.db *.ncb *.lib *.idb *.ilk *.msi *.res *.pch *.aps *.*~ *.~* ~*.* -results.xml bin/*.xml *.xml /*.xml [Tt]emp *.log *.suo *.exe *.obj *.log *.user *.data *.bak

According to the SVN help page 4.13, "If you want to ignore all CVS folders, just add CVS to the ignore list. There is no need to specify CVS */CVS as you did in earlier versions." But despite the mask above, both SVN->Add and SVN->Commit still show every Debug, Release, Bin, Obj, etc. folder. AAAARRRRRGGGGG!!!!!!

PLEASE! ALL I WANT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE IS FOR MY Subversion IGNORE MASKS TO WORK!
