auto-collapse not working

Tags: #auto-collapse

It appears that the auro-collapse panels function is not working in CS5.5. If I right click on the panels and select the auto-collapse feature then when the panel is open and I click anywhere outside the panel it should automatically close. It does not do that. Any suggestions?

    Auto-Collapse is not available in all products.


    In some products, if you select Auto-Collapse Icon Panels from the Interface or User Interface Options preferences, an expanded panel icon collapses automatically when you click away from it.

    Definitely works here on Win 7.


    I put the panels into Icon mode (auto-hide mode switched on) and whichever panel is open auto-hides when I click elsewhere.

    Folks.....I have discovered the problem! If you have Dreamweaver operating on an extended display the function will not work. If you drag Dreamweaver back onto your main display this feature will work!

    Still works here on dual monitor setup.


    Can you provide an exact set of steps so we can reliably re-produce what you're seeing?

    The most direct way is via the official Feature Request/Bug Report form
