Auto Toggle Panes

Macro Monday – a new macro to dig into every Monday!

I like to use Komodo without any panes or tabs showing – just the editor.
Normally I would use keybindings to toggle the relevant panes when I need them
but I wanted something more intuitive; so I wrote a macro.

Whenever you want to use your panes you move your mouse towards them to perform
an action, so I figured – why not toggle my panes automatically whenever I
move my mouse towards them. That’s exactly what the macro I wrote aims to do.

There are still some caveats, for example it currently tends to trigger when
you are simply trying to place a breakpoint. I have some ideas on how to fix this
and will likely be releasing an update for this later on, but for now it is
already quite usable. I am using it fulltime myself.
