Hiding doesn't change anything but the visibility. If you need to change focus either use "go" 
or set the defaultstack.

I think this is a documentation glitch. All the dictionary references in that last paragraph 
aren't showing up, so it isn't clear what the nouns are. But "hide" is still supported as far 
as I know. I think the missing references there are talking about QT commands.
