I was trying to specify a custom SSH key to connect to a remote database via SSH tunnel with my database client. The standard OS X file dialog doesn’t show hidden folders, so I couldn’t select the custom key file in the ~/.ssh folder.

Turns out it’s quite simple. Press the following keys to toggle visibility of hidden folders in OS X file dialogs:

<command> + <shift> + '.'

That last character is a period.
