Re: How do I add the file to the ignore list without deleting it?

I have to disagree Simon.

There are cases where yes, you do need to exclude but I too am annoyed that
when I righ-click a file and try to simply add it to the ignore list, half
the time it only gives me the option to Delete and Ignore.

What if I do NOT want to delete it but just ignore it. This is a valid
issue. You can't say that 100% of the time you want to delete it from your
local working copy! You loose potentially something vital that you do need
locally but Subversion does not need.
