Hidden templates displaying even though turned off

Under Module Settings, I have "Hide hidden templates on publish/edit tab" set to "Yes" but hidden templates (those starting with _) are still shown on entry pages.

EE 3.4.2
Structure 4.0.0-b.7

    Sorry about the delay in response!

    I believe the template group will need to start with _ in order for them to be hidden. Any chance you can confirm this is the case?

    EE lets you do that on the template level without having to hide the whole group and adds a little closed eye icon to indicate which templates are hidden. I figured the point of this feature was to carry that over to Structure.

    Yeah, we've been thinking about this one a bit. We're not 100% sure what to think yet. Since Structure has supported the hidden template groups for some time, but not the individual templates being hidden this could lead to sites where people edit their entries and lose the template it was assigned to.

    If you add $config['hidden_template_indicator'] = '_'; to your EE config.php file, Structure will hide those templates from the entry pages.

    The config option information is located here:
