I can't replicate this issue on the latest builds. The panel hides after applying that setting and leaving Edit mode. Can you please re-test?
Comment 2 Patrick Silva 2023-06-21 13:36:17 UTC
THe bug occurs when I have vertical and horizontal panels at the same time.
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2023-06-21 14:08:46 UTC
Can you attach a screenshot of your setup that shows the panel arrangement?

An additional parameter needs to be present when attempting to reproduce this bug: a second panel. The autohide on the primary panel works as expected, but the second panel does not.

Can't reproduce on master with both full length vertical and horizontal autohide panels. Maybe it has been fixed. Do people still see this issue on master?
Comment 9 Nate Graham 2023-12-20 21:02:22 UTC
Also seems fixed for me.
