I don't use Frame 9 but from the recent demos it looks quite slick. We're on
Flare here.

If I am not wrong, there is another dockable state where you hide pods to
the outermost edge of Windows.
It pops up only where you hover over it. That would be the state to use the
pods in, hovering to the edge, unless required. The pods would hide
automatically when not in focus.

Am not too sure about keyboard shortcuts though.

Anybody else using / evaluating this?

It's OK at home where I have a 1680x1050, but I find the new UI unusable on
the 1024x768 laptop screen I'm working on most of the time for my current
project. As I posted on the Adobe FM forum:

Is there some way to dismiss a pod using the keyboard? I find no mention of
that in the online help topics on keyboard shortcuts or using pods.

The pod UI is fine on my desktop with a big screen, but when I'm working on
my laptop the pods get in the way of the text I'm editing and its scroll

If there's not some way to drive this from the keyboard, this is a
deal-breaker for me.
