I'd like for my dockable windows to hide a little faster than they do now. Is this a user or application setting within ArcMap or ArcGIS?

More details: I'm specifically interested in ArcMap, but if it's one setting for the entire ArcGIS desktop--I'll take it.

  • You might be able to turn off docking shadows completely if I read this correctly. That might increase the close speed a little. – Michael Todd Jul 27 '11 at 20:15
  • Good suggestion, but that didn't work for me. – Jay Cummins Jul 27 '11 at 20:20

    I just figured out that hitting the escape key will immediately hide the window--good enough workaround for me. – Jay Cummins Jul 27 '11 at 20:21
  • @JayCummins, I'd post and accept that as the answer. True it doesn't address the Q as asked, but sometimes the best answer is one the comes from outside the initially conceived scope. ;-) – matt wilkie Nov 14 '11 at 20:02

If there was it would probably be in the Advanced ArcMap Settings utility. As it's not, I don't think this is possible -- unless there is a .NET-wide registry setting somewhere that the ArcGIS applications also use.

  • What does this have to do with .NET? – Petr Krebs Sep 26 '11 at 6:10
  • I thought the ArcGIS 10 applications were in .NET now. – blah238 Sep 26 '11 at 19:25
