Navigation Menu - pop-out when hidden instead of unhide on navigation
I would love to use the hide Nav Menu feature, it would improve crucial horizontal screen real estate, but I never do because every time I click on something in the menu it just un-hides it.
It would be markedly better if when toggled hidden the menu just stayed hidden and becomes a pop-out instead. This functionality isn't new, may sites do this. KACE's "View by:" also does something similar though has overlapping issues.
I brought this up at the last conference.
This issue may be fixed in the next major release. The plan is to let you click (without expanding) to get to any dashboard page, and it will remember the fact that you’ve hidden the main nav panel when you get to the next page. However, I believe you may be asking specifically for a “hover” functionality which would auto-show the nav (and hide it). Please let me know if what we are planning does not meet your needs so we can change it back from “started” status and re-release the votes
