Real full screen mode on Mac

I'm a huge fan of the new UI adjustments. But please, would you, Adobe, consider providing a real full screen mode for Mac users, like you did in Lightroom. Personally I like the dark gray UI but that way, the Apple menue bar on top of my screen becomes more distracting. I'd like to work on my pictures in the second screen mode (by pressing the F key once) and access the menue bar only by hovering towards the top of the screen.


Not much of a bug, but a really desired request.

    Actually, I was thinking about this...


    What if you hit F twice to get to the Full Screen


    In Full Screen Mode, panels are hidden. They can be accessed on the sides of the screen, or revealed by pressing Tab.


    So if you press TAB while in full screen mode you'll see your panels, and then can right click outside the image's workspace to change the background from Black to a lighter gray if you prefer.


    Of course Shift+F will take you back to the previous fullscreen mode where you can see the Menu Bar.


    If you weren't aware of some of these settings then, I hope this helps!

    You're right, there is quite a bit of interest in the implementation of an OSX Lion-like fullscreen mode with Photoshop but it has its limitations.


    Read Jeff T's post here for more information on the difficulties of implementing this at this time.


    Thanks for the feedback!
