Screenshot of the black bar in full-screen mode

I noticed that when I go full-screen in LibreOffice on my Mac (OS 10.11.3), there is a black bar at the top of the screen above the toolbar.

I can confirm this. Not just in Writer but in all modules that I've tried, including the "main" window when LibreOffice is launched.
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2016-02-12 06:19:22 UTC
Can you guys tell us what version of LibreOffice you're running? Also is this a regression compared to older versions?d 

Marking as NEEDINFO as we need versions of LibreOffice. Once you give us this info please set to UNCONFIRMED.
Comment 3 pljcbsn 2016-02-13 08:58:14 UTC
I changed the version to the current release version, I noticed it in version 5.0.x releases too.
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2016-02-13 19:01:41 UTC
Version is earliest version ("Version: earliest affected). Would be really nice to know if it's a regression by testing older releases:

Comment 5 Buovjaga 2016-03-13 18:39:24 UTC
Please test with an old version to find out the last version it worked in: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/OS_X

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.

Tested with: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 (15E2066) with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: d3bf12ecb743fc0d20e0be0c58ca359301eb705f
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Mac OS X 10.11.4; UI Render: default.

It seems using the native OSX full-screen behaviour (which now puts the zoomed in window in it's own space), is broken. The central issue is how LO handles Spaces on OSX.

Workaround: Double click on the window's title bar to maximise the window (like 'full screen' in earlier OSX versions).
