3.1 Transparency of Standard Toolbox Images

CJ: The images will be converted until Monday or Tuesday next week.

3.2 Hidden Folders in File Picker

MMP: Matthias mentioned that there is problem with hidden files and folders within the file picker. On Windows systems it is possible to specify that hidden files or folders will appear in the list of files in Windows Explorer. ignores this setting, so that hidden files and folders never appear in the file picker.

The solution for this issue could be to provide in the Configuration an entry which will have the following settings:

- Always display hidden files and folders
- Never display hidden files and folders
- Use system setting (Default)

Additionally there is a new folder/file type needed to indicate hidden folder/files.
