Dear Roman,

Thank you for the quick reply.

For reference for other people:

I added log to the hidden filter to hide *.log files in all my
directories. This is useful for directories with tex documents. However,
this is unhelpful when checking system logs etc.

So one can use zh or Ctrl-h to show the hidden files. This workflow is
easy, though not elegant.

A more elegant approach would be define tags for various directories and
set the hidden_filter per tag (though I don't know if this is possible).
But looks like too much work for little gain to me. So I didn't
investigate it further.
