IDEA 2020.3: Empty tool windows (Find, Run) can be shown, and don't responde to Hide Active Tool Window Follow
Hi Folks. I just updated to IDEA 2020.3, and I see new behavior WRT tool windows. Formerly, the keystroke for showing a tool window (e.g., Find via command-3 on my mac) would do nothing if there were currently no results. Now the command shows a blank window with instructions - which is fine by me - but the same keystroke should hide it, but does not. Hide Active Tool Window (shift-esc on my mac) does work on blank Find. An empty Run tool window behaves differently: I hit command-4 to show it, which is gray with "Nothing to show", but (like Find) command-4 does not hide it, nor does shift-esc.
