Hi all! This might seem petty, but I'm curious. When I run an action in Illustrator CS4, the action palette item "shows itself." i.e., normally, I have all my actions so that only the name of the action appears (the arrow to the left is pointing to the right). But when I run the action, the arrow points down, revealing all the steps in the action. I have a lot of actions, so if I run them, it either takes up a lot of space on my desktop or I continuously have to scroll up and down to find the action I'm looking for because they are all showing all their steps.
Is there a way to stop it from showing all the steps? I don't want to see the steps when I run the actions.

The replay answer
Yes, the action "showing itself" behavior is very annoying, and I'm pretty sure that it has been requested that it be fixed.
Another way to get around this is to assign F-Keys to your actions. You have up to 48 combinations available: F1 thru F12; alone, with command key, with shift key, and with both. (F13, F14, and F15 don't work)
If you have the entire Action SET closed, you can use the F-Keys to run the actions without the palette "exploding" open on you.
By the way, you can also close all the revealed actions in a set at once if you hold down the option key while closing the set. You may have to do it twice.
