In RH 7.2 Files Manager (Nautilus 1.0.4) how to view all files including hidden files? I am unable to find all files option.

I'm unsure about Nautilus but in a shell:

ls -a

will give you all files including hidden ones.

On command line it is ok but I need in the File Manager GUI the same functionality.
