    Hi Robert,

    In order to hide the Compass of RadDocking you could apply a new CompassStyle that sets the visibility of all five indicators to False:

    <Style x:Key="CompassStyle" TargetType="{x:Type telerik:Compass}">
        <Setter Property="IsLeftIndicatorVisible" Value="False" />
        <Setter Property="IsTopIndicatorVisible" Value="False" />
        <Setter Property="IsRightIndicatorVisible" Value="False" />
        <Setter Property="IsBottomIndicatorVisible" Value="False" />
        <Setter Property="IsCenterIndicatorVisible" Value="False"/>
    </Style>
    ...
    <telerik:RadDocking x:Name="radDocking" CompassStyle="{StaticResource CompassStyle}">
    ...
    </telerik:radDocking>

    However, please make a difference between the Compass and RootCompass - please, check this article from our help documentation. If you want to hide the indicators of the RootCompass too the same logic could be used - a new RootCompassStyle should be applied. 

    As another approach we could suggest you to handle the PreviewShowCompass event. Inside it you could easily hide the indicators as shown below:

    void radDocking_PreviewShowCompass(object sender, PreviewShowCompassEventArgs e)
    {
        e.Compass.IsBottomIndicatorVisible = false;
        e.Compass.IsCenterIndicatorVisible = false;
        e.Compass.IsRightIndicatorVisible = false;
        e.Compass.IsLeftIndicatorVisible = false;
        e.Compass.IsTopIndicatorVisible = false;
    }

    We hope this will help you.
