I was watching Dr. J's Podcast #34 called Tips & Tweaks. In it, he illustrates the feature of the Instant Details when it is floating and set to fade automatically. I decide to try it out, and that is when I discovered that:
1) my instant details panel does not float at all. It used to float in a previous installation of Accordance 10.3.3.1.
2) the auto fade therefore does not work; or maybe the panel fades immediately when I try to float it?
Anyways, it seems my instant details panel is not working the way it is supposed to. Below is my preference setting for instant details. I will update this thread if I find any thing new.
