Re: adding dead space to floating panels

But how will a panel look with hide buttons AND handles at both ends? 

Would it be possible to modify the hide buttons so that you can switch
off the hide behaviour, but retain the display of the button (and use
the button as a handle). Perhaps the arrow buttons could denote that the
hide behviour is on?

Just a thought ...
