Description of problem:
I was composing an email, and I tried to insert a file in my home dir starting with a dot (".") in its name, but the file selector did not present this file.
Additionally, I could not insert any arbitrary file by entering its complete name.
It should be possible to insert each text file by directly entering the file name including the complete path.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compose new email by evolution.
2.Insert->Text file ...
Actual Results: The file selector was presented without the presenting the dot files.
Expected Results: All files are presented.
You can type arbitrary filenames by pressing Ctrl-L; it will offer suggestions
based on all files in the current directory that complete the text you have
typed so far.
Hope this helps.
Arguably this feature should be easier to discover, though I'm going to resolve
this as NOTABUG for now.
