Summary: Add intelli-hide behavior to Plasma panels
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
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.
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
No actual results since this feature isn't implemented.
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.
