1. open the output window
2. minimize the window by clicking the 'minimize' button
3! 'slide in' the output window by hovering the mouse over the output button above the status bar. the panel slides in,
but the window grabs focus so it won't slide back out without manual intervention.
Works fine for me. Would you please provide some additional information, may be more detailed steps.
May be special kind of output window should be used, filled by certain output from application or
empty. Any kind or details.
"Would you please provide some additional information"
all other minimized windows remain unfocused when they slide in (up). this is so that when you move the mouse away they
will automatically slide back out (down), which is quite useful if you quickly want to look it something. the output
window used to work this way, but recently (within the last few months) it doesn't. it grabs focus when it slides in
(up), which prevents it from sliding back out (down).
"May be special kind of output window should be used, filled by certain output from application or empty."
i'm not sure what you mean. this is about the focus; the content of the window makes no difference to me.

the "exception repoter" window is slid in (up) by hovering over the button without clicking. the editor tab 'pom.xml' still has focus.

! the "output" window is slid in (up) by hovering over the button without clicking. the 'output' window has taken the focus away from the editor tab 'pom.xml', which is wrong.

should the component still be 'IDE'?
i know this doesn't sound like a major problem if you don't use slide-in windows, but if you do it's VERY annoying
because it breaks your concentration. first, it covers up your code, then you're wondering why the window isn't going
away on its own like all the other windows, then you have take your eyes off (what's left of) your code to move your
mouse to the button and click.
please, it shouldn't be a major endeavour. can this get taken care of before the release?
it's probably too late for 6.8 fix now
cc'ing tomas who might a bit more about this issue
it's output window problem, all other sliding windows behave correctly
