Auto-Hide Docked Palettes Bug, VW2017


Just started playing around with VW2017 and I LOVE the new auto-hide abilities of palettes. Being able to auto-hide floating palettes is a functionality I've been sorely missing since I switched to a Mac.

I also unexpectedly discovered the new "Auto-Hide Docked Palettes" feature, which allows the palettes docked to the left and right to auto-hide off the screen. This is amazing, since it allows you to use the full width of your screen as drawing space, then easily access tools and things when needed just by hovering.

However, this feature keeps on turning itself off. One such case is simply running a "Save As" command. Once it saves, the docked palettes are no longer auto-hidden and the setting must be re-enabled. I assume this is a bug.

So is this maybe a "File Preference" Feature,
not a VW Preference or Workspace saved Setting?
