    The meta file mode is fixed to "Visible Meta Files" on the Project's Editor Settings.
    No one needs to live with meta files all over, please let us hide it when using Collaborate.

    Metafiles are absolutely essential for version control. They should be on by default to prevent tracking loss resulting in catastrophic errors that could nuke a project. I'm not sure why the option to hide them even exists. Seems like a great way to set people up for failure.

    @CRYWOLF86, Collaborate does indeed automatically track metafile changes. This setting is managed when the Collaborate service is enabled for a project to ensure that all the metafiles are published with the project.
