Win32 and 64, English

JTB World Inc.
Be able to change the time it takes to show/hide or roll-up/roll-out the palette windows in Autodesk® AutoCAD®.

General Usage Instructions

Run JTBWPaletteAutoHideSpeed and then close AutoCAD.

Make changes to the settings, click OK. Start AutoCAD to see the effect on palettes that are set to Auto-hide.

Roll-up speed is the time it takes to show the palette.

Roll-out is the time it takes to hide the palette.

The “holdopen” delay is an additional delay that keeps the palette open for a specified time when it is opened programmatically; if the mouse does not move over it at this time it automatically rolls back up.

If you have older versions or if AutoCAD LT is used you need to manually run the app that is installed in "%appdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\JTBW-PaletteAutoHideSpeed.bundle\Contents\Windows\PaletteAutoHideSpeed.exe". Example: "C:\Users\jtb\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\JTBW-PaletteAutoHideSpeed.bundle\Contents\Windows\PaletteAutoHideSpeed.exe"
