When this list contains a lot of sheets it obscures Object Data, Views, Styles panes. Trying to keep a little bit of these panes visible, to quickly click on when covered by the sheets pane, is a bit of a juggling act.
Maybe there's a better method of handling these items that I'm not aware of...... ???????
Not sure exactly what you mean, but you do realise that in the pref pane you can make the palettes transparent - right? In the workspace tab it is about halfway down.
The Window Shade effect is simply the ability to click on the title bar of a palette and have the items in that palette appear to roll up behind the title bar like a roll up Shade ( or Blind ) on a window. The title bar alone still resides within view and you just click on it again when you want to see the list of sheets which now 'Unrolls'.
I have seen it before but can't think in which applications. I am sure someone else on the forum can let us know where it can be seen ....... Anyone ??????
Photoshop and SketchUp are both example of what you mean, i think.
I would second this request and I would add a little something to it - I want my scroll wheel to work inside these palettes. I too often have very long lists of sheets and although it isn't a terribly big ordeal to scroll down it with the arrows, scroll wheel support would certainly fit nicely into my work style.
I remember way back in my cad days in the late 80s where the office designed a digitizing tablet overlay where we could build our own command control and use lisp... really simple process.
