Because I work with a laptop I do not have space to keep the Termviewer open. After adding a term, I would have thought that Autohide would do this, but it seems to have no function. Am I missing something?

What method are you using to add the term to the term base?

If you are using the normal add term (Ctrl-F2) the software will wait for you to save the term before implementing auto hide. But if you are using add quick term the term viewer will automatically save the term for you and close after a few seconds, IF you do not have your cursor in the term viewer, otherwise it will wait for you to move your cursor out of the term viewer before auto hiding.
