Auto-hiding windows

If you want a tool window to auto-hide, un-pin the tool window by clicking the pushpin icon in the title bar. This will cause the window to auto-hide at the edge of the container to which it belongs. The screen shots below show the situation before and after un-pinning the panel.

By hovering the mouse over the tab at the edge of the container that displays the window title will cause the window to slide out over the other panels. As long as the mouse cursor is over the tab or the panel itself, the panel will stay visible. Moving the mouse away from the tab and panel will cause the panel to collapse again to its un-pinned state. To dock the panel, click the "pin" button to pin the panel in place.
