Is there a way to make the auto hidden tabs larger?  Our users are having lots of issues clicking them.

Hi Henry,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We can make the auto hidden tabs larger by setting MinHeight in DockingManager.SideItemStyle property. Please feel free to update us about the issues you are facing. We have prepared a sample for the same kindly download it from the following link,

Sample: AutoHide_TabSize.zip

Please let us know whether the provided sample meets your requirement or not.

This actually doesn't fix our issue.  We need to be able to make the tabs taller.  We have all our auto hidden items at the bottom edge of the window and our users keep accidentally clicking on the windows toolbar instead of the auto hidden tab.  I tried to change the MinWidth property of the example you sent me but it makes the tab get cut off.  Screen shot attached.
