Make it possible to exclude a file
It should be possible to exclude files from build. For example, we have a structure where we describe in a Makefile which files to be built. This has led to the creation of some .erl-files in the src directory which are not built, such as Template.erl etc. It is important that one can exclude these so that the errors and warnings lists are accurate.
While this is possible to implement, I feel it might be confusing. For one thing, if an excluded file is added or deleted you have to modify both the Makefile and the erlIDE project.
Wouldn’t it be more straightforward to just create the templates in a separate directory that isn’t a source directory?

A project's properties will allow filtering of files by name.
Well, the makefile is our own, so that is "our problem." My main concern is that both ways are compatible. If I have to move our existing files, they're not.
Added by me.
