Even with show hidden files and show package contents enabled, the find function does not show certain files. For example, when I search for .tcshrc on my entire hard drive, I get no results. However, I can see the file in my home directory when I browse to it using the browser window. Is there a setting for find that I am overlooking?

    Are you using the Search function? It should find hidden files (as opposed to Spotlight) without having to enable Show Hidden Files.
