Exclude SVN directories from Eclipse search

If you perform search in Eclipse IDE and use SVN in your project then probably you have encountered the situation that the search tool looks also in .svn.

To fix this situation you can:
  1. Open Project settings
  2. Select Resoursec / Resource Filter
  3. Click Add... button
  4. Select exclude all, applies to folders, all children
  5. Type .svn
And that is all you need. The next search will no include svn directories.
