Is there a way to keep a particular panel out of the way?

I want to keep certain panels out of the way.
Is there any way?

In the panel setting you can "hide" panel.

sorry.
I don't want to hide it, I always want it to be behind.
If you hide it normally, the line will remain, so I want to eliminate it.

Yes, I think perhaps so.
But, my native language is not English, so I couldn't fully understand what it meant.

Re: Is there a way to keep a particular panel out of the way?

It is not directly possible to fully hide the left-over strip when the panel is set to hide. However, you can make the left-over strip thinner.

Xfce versions lower than 4.14 (gtk2) - put this snippet in ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

style "xfce-panel-window-style"
{
  XfcePanelWindow::autohide-size = 1
}
class "XfcePanelWindow" style "xfce-panel-window-style"

Xfce version 4.14 and higher (gtk3) - put this snippet in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

#XfcePanelWindow {
   -XfcePanelWindow-autohide-size: 1;
}

And then make it look invisible by changing the background of the panel to a transparent colour.

But this means the panel will have a transparent background. How about a panel that is a background color? Can't we make the background color of that line after it is hidden, to be transparent? Something like  -XfcePanelWindow-autohide-background-color:#fff0; ?

I had a closer look and it appears that you can target the hidden sliver (at least in 4.16). You can use the following CSS snippet:

#XfcePanelWindowHidden {background: transparent}

This will make the leftover sliver of panel transparent, but maintain the existing color of the panel background.

Oh beautiful! Is there a wiki/document that I can use to grab such selectors? I am quite ok with CSS but ofc if you do not know the selectors... smile - Thank you so much btw!

Re: Is there a way to keep a particular panel out of the way?

Not really - the info is scattered all around. I wrote up a how-to here that is a good start. Also this gnome page.

What I for this instance was, ensuring the keybinding was enabled (see second link), I right-clicked on the panel to bring up the menu (to select it) and then pressed the Ctrl+Shift+i shortcut to bring up the inspector. There it showed the hidden ID that could be used.

Its quite the rabbit hole.
