Description Jan Rathmann 2024-03-16 16:27:23 UTC
If Application Dashboard is used as the app launcher on a panel that is set to auto hide, the panel stays visible if the Application Dashboard is invoked via Meta key (instead of mouse click). 

1. In a fresh session, right click on Kicker icon, "Show alternatives", select Application Dashboard.
2. Right click on panel, "Enter edit mode", set visibility to auto hide.
3. Press Meta key to open the Dashboard.
4. Click on an app icon (e.g. Dolphin).

Panel stays visible and doesn't auto hide anymore. Hovering over the panel with the cursor doesn't change that.

Panel stays hidden until hovered with the cursor.

KDE Plasma Version: 6.0.80
KDE Frameworks Version: 6.0.0
Qt Version: 6.6.2

* Reproduced with Neon Unstable installation and with OpenSuse Krypton live image.
* Happens both on Wayland and X11.
* Happens both with floating and non-floating panel.
* Does _not_ happen if Application Dashboard is launches via mouse.
* On Plasma 6.0 stable this happens sometimes too, but I have found no way to reliably reproduce it there.
