Description rudivs 2012-06-29 08:36:15 UTC
Writer and Calc have a full-screen mode that can be activated by pressing Ctrl+Shift+J or selecting View > Full-screen from the menu. Draw, however, does not have this functionality. Considering the visual nature of drawing, I would like to be able to maximize the viewing area.
Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-07-01 09:03:07 UTC
Set to enhancement.
Comment 2 samtuke 2015-02-16 12:36:45 UTC
Has this feature yet been implemented, or is it still missing?
Comment 3 Bart 2015-04-17 08:12:05 UTC
Seems to still be missing in
I would love to see it also.
Comment 4 Christian Koppen 2016-03-02 17:26:42 UTC
Please implement the fullscreen feature for Draw.
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2016-06-30 08:37:08 UTC
Writer and Calc stay in edit mode after switching to full screen. Impress however has the presentation mode. Since Draw is closely related to Impress we should implement the Slide Show first. 

If you want to edit drawings in full screen mode this would be another feature, missing also in Impress.
Comment 6 Heiko Tietze 2016-09-14 11:34:45 UTC
No further UX replies so I remove the keyword. Please implement Slide Show (like F5 in Impress) (needed for presentation for mockups) and the full screen editing mode (like Shift+Ctrl+J in LibreOffice Writer or F11 in Mozilla Firefox).
Comment 7 Antanas 2019-09-30 06:40:19 UTC
Still missing this basic feature in
Comment 8 Xisco Faulí 2020-03-09 13:28:46 UTC
Please add keyword 'needsUXEval' and CC 'libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org' if input from UX is needed.
Comment 9 andreas_k 2020-09-03 05:25:23 UTC
as there are some trouble with full-screen-mode and edit, I suggest to have an do not disturbe mode like in BUG 88931 written.
Comment 10 Heiko Tietze 2020-09-04 08:45:16 UTC
I disagree with "do not disturb" layouts/modes/interactions. The full-screen mode aims for exactly the same and is implemented for Writer. Adding it to Draw makes sense for sake for consistency.
