I am running PyCharm 2.7.3 on OSX. I am trying to setup the Run Tool Window to auto-hide. I have tried both Docked and Undocked Modes. In Docked Mode I am running Unpinned Mode. This setup almost works. If the focus of the IDE is in that Tool Window, pressing the escape key or clicking anywhere outside that Tool Window will auto-hide the Tool Window.
However, if the IDE focus is in an editor pane and I run some code, the Run Tool Window becomes visible but does not receive focus. At that point the Run Tool Window will not auto-hide until focus goes to another Tool Window or the whole app is forced to repaint (by switching to another app and back).
Am I doing something wrong? Is this a PyCharm bug?
It seems the same behavior exists in IntelliJ 12.1.4 community edition on OSX. This suggests the behavior is consistent across the Jetbrains common code-base. I have not yet tried to see if this happens in PyCharm on Linux to see if the operating system platform makes a difference.
