    I am working with a 3rd party library and it requires a config file that start with "."(I cannot change this). However XCode won't allow me to add files that start with "." as a resource, and if I remove the dot, add the file, then try to rename it, xcode will not let me change the name to something that starts with .

    I guess I could create the file from the non-dot version when the app first starts, but I would rather not.

    What if you rename it via Terminal out of Xcode? Does that not get picked up when you compile?

    Change the 3rd party library so it doesn't use a config file that starts with "."?

    Exactly what 3rd party library are you using?
