Ignore Folder in Architecture Type Dependency Diagram


I'd like to be able to have the Type Dependency diagram ignore a specific folder in a project, the Migrations folder in an EF Core assembly. That particular folder includes a lot of classes that have little bearing on the current state of the project.

Is this possible? I tried entering the folder via Code Inspection -> skip this folder. But it still shows up.

Hello Mark

You may exclude this folder from the project and then run "Type Dependency diagram" action.


Unfortunately, excluding the folder is not an option. I forgot to mention this is a Net Core-based project, so the option exclude files or folders is not available in VS 2015. I can delete the folder, but I definitely don't want to do that :)


Hello, I excluded folders that I don't need. But the graph is still stuck on "The graph is bein laid out". I should be able to cancel the laid out and do it manually if the laid out is too hard to handle for Resharper. (already fifteen minutes here).

Edit: found out that you could click on a folder and click "Show type dependancies", some graph can be freaking huge! Need to find out how to best use this feature.
