Hide files or filetypes from Obsidian

Similar to Hide select vault folders from Obsidian - #2 by jacklaing. It’d be great to be able to tell Obsidian what to show/hide in terms of non-note files.

For my own purposes, it’d be fine to say “ignore PDFs, JPGs, and PNGs.” But I could also see hiding individual files being useful, so maybe that’s a path worth walking, too.

The use case: I keep notes on e.g., projects that also feature lots of other resources. I don’t want to keep separate folders on my file systems for the PDFs for those projects, but I also never want to refer to them in Obsidian. Right now there’s no escape, though. I am continually haunted by Receipt 25303.pdf. Haunted! :ghost:
