Add ignored files without unignore
there is this user voice item:
which is about adding ignored files. We have the exact same situation from time to time.
The way to unignore the files leads to a crowded ignore list with lots of !xyz.dll entries. Although one could remove that entry once the item is versioned this is often forgotten and the ignore list is updated with the unignored item.
Another drawback is that people simply don't understand why they cannot add certain items. Especially when using the explorer context menu for adding items or folder structures there is no action at all. It just doesn't add it and if you haven't had this situation before you just don't get it why the operation failed (without any message).
I don't understand why the add operation is disabled for ignored items in the first place. Could you please allow adding of ignored item?
