In Cinnamon 4.0.10, all I get are the options click boxes, no show/hide applets, highlight, remove or the last Buttons. Thus I can't hide any applets. Bummer.

Super useful, works great! I have one minor suggestion: my panel is vertical (on the left side of the screen), and this applet works as intended, but it would be nice to have the option to have the arrow icon point up or down, instead of left and right as it normally is

When show/hide applet is installed in Linux Mint 18.2, it reduces the Update Manager icon in size. Moving another applet in panel edit mode restores the Update Manager icon to its full size until panel edit mode is switched off. This occurs only with this particular applet. Apart from that it works fine. Thank you.

Same issue as Simon. Love the idea but can't find how/where to add apps to this.
Use panel edit mode and drag the drawer icon to the right of any apps you wish to keep hidden. When you stop panel edit mode it will collapse all items to the left of the icon.

How do you hide applets with this? I see no way to do it. I've tried dragging them onto this applet and I've looked for a configurable list in the settings. What am I missing?
