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

Actually, I've never used it and just tested it. It did exactly what you want it to do. It added an svn:ignore to the folder properties. It deleted the file from the repository. After I committed the new property and the delete the file was still in my working copy.

So, I'm not sure what more you want it to do?
