Basing new view/folder design from hidden view/folder

When designing a new view or folder, you may want to start your build from an existing view or folder. Normally, you would select the existing view or folder from the list using the "Options..." button under R 4.x or the "Copy from..." button under R 5.x. What if you want to use a hidden view/folder as the base of your new view or folder. Normally, you would have to edit the exiting view or folder and unhide it, then go back and hide it when finished. Alternatively, you can use the undocumented feature of the Ctrl + Shift keys to display the hidden views/folders.

From the new view/folder dialog, hold down the Ctrl + Shift keys.
