Description Nikola Chikos 2018-11-23 15:44:18 UTC
Description:
Ctrl+Shift+J does not fully maximize the workspace on Ubuntu 18.10. I get two bars on top, the OS's standard bar and LibreOffice's bar. It could be a lot better if somehow I could eliminate those two bars and have just LibreOffice's menu bar instead. Apps such as GIMP, Inkscape, Krita, Darktable, Blender, etc. seem to apply full-screen mode better, at least in Ubuntu 18.10.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ctrl+Shift+J

Actual Results:
I get two bars on top, the OS's standard bar and LibreOffice's bar.

Expected Results:
Just the app's working space, whether that's a Writer document, a Calc table, etc.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Have you tried it in Ubuntu 18.10? Could you upload a screenshot? Thanks.

Calc maximizes just fine in Windows 10; it's not working properly in Ubuntu 18.10.

Could you provide a screenshot about a full-screen app which seems to have better appearance? I don't think so it's a LibreOffice issue.

According to your screenshot you're using Gnome desktop environment. Unity desktop environment has had the given feature.

Hi, I've added Blender's, GIMP's and Krita's full-screen appearance modes under 18.10...
Comment 11 Vera 2018-12-09 14:37:03 UTC
Hi,

Oh, I see know.

I can confirm this issue in
Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: e4c2d0bb57ab8ea8f5c400d103d01376b8140f22
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.18; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2018-11-30_21:37:10
Locale: hu-HU (hu_HU.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

But only for Gnome desktop environment. Full screen feature is working properly in Unity and Xfce desktop environment.
Comment 12 Nikola Chikos 2018-12-09 15:10:06 UTC
Correct, but since Ubuntu is bound to use Gnome for some time now (I guess), it's a kind of a nuisance to lose that screen estate... :)

Sorry, wrong command. remove the first 'libreoffice'. just 'SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk soffice' or 'SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk libreoffice'

Libreoffice launches, but there doesn't seem to have an impact on the full-screen mode...
Comment 18 Nikola Chikos 2019-01-17 08:06:35 UTC
Hey guys, just to let you know that I fixed the issue by installing pixel-saver as a GNOME extension. There's a single tab at the top, but I find this acceptable. Cheers!
