A full screen state is not accomplished when invoked for the first time within a same active session.
Steps to Reproduce:
–In any document–
1. Ctrl+Shift+J – first attempt
2. Ctrl+Shift+J – second attempt
See attachment in my next comment.
In step 1. – An unexpected icon fills space with no relevance. User has then to exit from that state and renew operation in step 2.in order for the full-screen state to be at last operational as intended.
Full-screen achievement to be a one-step-operation.

Full-screen issue within the same active session.
Not reproducible for me with LibreOffice 6.0.4 from Ubuntu PPA under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64 with Unity.

It occurs in sessions Gnome, Gnome Classic, Gnome on X.org. Here as example:
$ printf 'Desktop: %s\nSession: %s\n' "$XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP" "$GDMSESSION"
I see that with LO 188.8.131.52.0+. Not sure whether it is a bug or a feature.
Seeing the button Fullscreen may be useful for a user who switch to full screen accidentally.

Cannot reproduce with

CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 4.18; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group threaded
And I don't see a reason why this action is not executed immediately. So this is not a UX feature.
I can't reproduce it in

with a clean profile on Linux Mint
In Gnome, does it happen with any other software ?
As you're using GTK3, could you please check if it's the same bug as bug 119688?
Setting to NEEDINFO for the time being...
The two-steps operation illustrated in that report is not a constant model. Writer may require from time to time more than two attempts –like it is the case now– in order to reach the expected Full-screen state. Among the applications belonging to the Libreoffice suite and that are available on Fedora, the only one to feature the Full screen feature is Calc. Using Calc on Gnome – now tested on Xorg environment–, the Full screen cannot be accomplished.
Current report appears not to be identical to bug 119688? –which occurs also on mys system– as the procedure required in the present report is:
1. Launch Writer for the first tine in current session (by default the window is maximized);
2. Invoke Full screen (Ctrl + Shift + J);
3. Maximize (Ctrl + Shift + J);
4. Invoke Full screen (Ctrl + Shift + J);
5. Repeat steps 2. and 3. as much as needed in order to reach a Full screen state in Gnone (which means the Gnome environment's top bar is covered by the Libreoffice application).

Hello Ricky Tigg,
Out of curiosity, is it fixed if you edit the exec line in .desktop to:
Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=gnome libreoffice --writer %U
Location of suggested file '.desktop'to edit is missing.
(In reply to ricky.tigg from comment #11)
> Location of suggested file '.desktop'to edit is missing.
Could you try to run LibreOffice with 'OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=unity libreoffice' from a command line instead ?
Above mentioned command tested in version 126.96.36.199; Execution of keys combination Shift + Ctrl + J fails to cover Gnome 3.28 top bar.
What is shown in the screenshot is a docked fullscreen toolbar. Related: bug 91282
