Yes, this is a bit dumb. To get into the .virtualenv directory in the
file save dialog, go to the enclosing directory, type .virtualenv in the
entry area and hit enter (you can also tab to partially complete the
name as you type). Once saved, you won't have to do this much since the
project will be in the recent lists/etc.
The project view should however show hidden files and seems to work for
me. For example, adding ~/.wingide4 and checking the "include hidden
and temporary files" option will show everything within that directory.
BTW, it probably doesn't make much sense to put your work in a hidden
directory. Hidden directories should be for things that you normally
don't want to see. I would personally use ~/virtualenv or ~/src instead
or something like that.
Hope this helps,
