Files beginning with a dot are usually hidden by default on most systems, but should be visible in the editor's file chooser. As long as you are editing straight from the extracted files or you moved/copied the whole folder there shouldn't be an issue. If you moved/copied the individual files from the folder there can be since the dot-files wouldn't be selected.
