JTB Palette Auto-hide Speed
Digitally signed app
With this app, you will be able to change the time it takes to show/hide or roll up/roll out the palette windows in Autodesk® AutoCAD®.
You can see the effect with palettes like Properties, Quickcalc, External References, Sheet Set Manager, Markup Set Manager, Shared Views, and Visual Styles Manager set to auto-hide.
CADWorx users might not get this app working due to CADWorx overriding these settings.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

Just what i needed, thank you, works great!
Very good. Thank you for this tool. I hope you keep updating it.
..... and at the same time sad that autodesk doesnt implement this very important ergonomic feature out of the box. Saves many hours in one working-year.
What a relief to not have your mouse make the palette jump out and crowd the screen when you inadvertently mouse over the palette!
How i Run JTBWPaletteAutoHideSpeed?
Excellent application to help reduce the frustration should your mouse accidentally encroach on the fly out zone.
Ive been using it for years, and with every new release of Autocad I have to change the rollout speed,Its quite annoying when hover with the pointer over tool palette to roll out so quick(especially when you move the mouse just a pixel to far) This gives us the option to customise the delay time before the panel rolls out. Thanks guys for saving our nerves :-) I wish this was part of the standard issue AutoCAD options setting...
Read the dialog to work this tool. Once you get that down it does what it says without having to hack your way around.
