Control over the console window auto-hide timeout (and/because adding prospecting info to the map)

It would be nice to be able to adjust the timeout value for when the console window auto-closes, or to be able to pin it open.

I'm using the prospecting pick and creating map waypoints with the information it shows in the console window, but the window auto-hides itself while doing that. Since there's no way to re-open it while editing a waypoint (as far as I'm aware), it usually means multiple attempts at opening and editing the waypoint between backing out and re-activating the console window to see the propick output.

(Or a 'create waypoint' link in the pick output would be even better!)

You can show/hide the console window manually by pressing TAB or whatever key you want assigned on "Chat: Show/Hide chat dialog" in the control settings.

Thanks, but that doesn't help while waypoint editing, even if rebinding show/hide to eg. Ctrl-Alt-1 - I think the add/edit-waypoint window must be capturing all keystrokes.
