If you have multiple palettes open, you can do a simple customization to these palettes so that they take up less space on your screen. In the picture below, I have four palettes opened at once and they are all docked at the left of my screen. When I hover over a given palette, it will expand…

In the picture below: I right click over a palette and select ‘Icons only”

    Is there any way to set Tool palettes expend only when I click on them and not on hover?
