I have a strange issue where project specific root level files (.gitignore, gradlew, gradle.properties, etc) show up twice in Android Studio’s project view. Does anybody know how to fix this?
I’ve tried re-importing the project (after deleting the .iml and .idea file/folder).
I found exactly the same problem recently when I created a new Gradle project and imported into IntelliJ. However, the root cause seems to be the use of symbolic links when importing the project.
I have the following symbolic link:
/data -> /Users/<user>/data
When I originally imported my project, I imported
/data/checkouts/<project_dir> but found that I had duplicate files from the top level directory exactly like as shown above.
However, I removed the project and attempted to import it again, this time using the full path of
/Users/<user>/data/checkouts/<project_dir> and found that I no longer see the duplicates.
I haven’t seen this problem before when importing an eclipse or Maven project, so can only imagine that it might be related to the use of the Gradle plugin for IntelliJ.
