Add auto hide for maximized tabs, tabs will fade out until top of screen is touched by mouse
When I go to use a program then maximize it, the tabs are there, but they always get in the way when I want to click something at the top of the window. So maybe have the ability to set a time limit for each individual program w/ WindowTabs to show when the tab bar at the top will appear.
This has been added in the latest version (2013.2.20). Right click on a maximized tab to enable auto hide for the group
It is the same for shrink and align tabs, it works only for the opened documents but this won't be kept next time document is open.
If you can please have a look, it would be great.
If i don't want to use this function, I can untick autohide maximize but this is working only for the open document.
As soon as I close it and reopen it, autohide maximize is ticked again
I'm using portable version.

You can just collapse the tabs to a small (4px tall) visual indicator that, when moused, animates the tabs down into view.

No, what is needed is a proxy that collapses and expands. For example, in Firefox, maximize puts it's tabs on the highlest row, so WT will block them - not good. But, in your solution, if I hover close to the top, the tabs will appear - but what If I just want to use the near-top Firefox tabs?
There is still a conflict. What is needed is a "collapse to proxy", and hovering over the proxy will slide in the WT again. The proxy could be a single small WT, so that you can still click around it even if the small proxy is over a Firefox tab.
The problem is not just with Firefox either - also when many tabs are used, and block the file path in the title bar in the window. Again, Proxy, especially a right aligned proxy, will solve this 99% of the time.
