Currently my o folder is appearing in my KDevelop project tree, and therefore .o files appear in the open file completion list.

Is there a way to exclude certain folders from KDevelop's view of the project?

I'm using KDevelop 4.3.

You have to add .kdev_ignore file to the folder which you want to exclude.

Thanks very much, works perfectly (after restarting KDevelop.) Do you know if it's possible to exclude files whose names match a pattern? – Drew Noakes Mar 7 '13 at 14:20
Sorry, have no idea – Maciej S Mar 11 '13 at 9:24
