            Bug ID: 371174
           Summary: Add intelli-hide behavior to Plasma panels
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: 5.8.2
          Platform: Other
               URL: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4L7L438fmSgamd1bTVUa
                    0lDZTQ/view
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Panel
          Assignee: plasma-b...@kde.org
          Reporter: kentallend...@gmail.com

Right now, there are only two options to adjust the behavior of the plasma
panel: always show the panel, or auto-hide the panel. Could we get an option to
intelli-hide the panel? Intelli-hide shows the panel when no windows are
obstructing the panel, but hides it when a window is maximized or covering the
panel; to bring back the panel, the user would put their cursor to the top of
the screen to display the panel to launch something. Incredible useful for
users like I who use the panel as a dock. This feature mimics the Plank dock
behavior.

The URL is just a screenshot of my desktop, but I'm trying to show how much
space it could save without dealing with the panel auto-hiding all the time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "Configure Plasma button" that allows users to edit the size and behavior of
the panel + adding widgets.
2. Click on "More Settings".
3. Change the Visibility of the Panel to Intellihide

Actual Results:  
No actual results since this feature isn't implemented.

Expected Results:  
The panel intellihides, reclaiming space from the bottom panel and fixing the
annoying problem with autohide.

A lot of people may say to just use Plank, but I feel the KDE plasma panels has
an edge over plank by being able to show notification count, progress bar and
general consistency to the desktop.
