    Toggling for Full Screen playback


      I am having no success toggling to full screen playback in Premier Pro CS6 using ctrl+` or anything else. The onmly way I can get to full screen during playback is by going to Edit/Prefernces/Playback and ticking one of the 2 monitors (or both) that I have connected. The only way of going back to small screen playback is by going into the same menu and deselecting.


      Look forward to hearing from anyone,

          This isn't the answer you are looking for, but maybe I can help a little.


          If you look in the keyboard shortcuts and search for "playback" the one under "edit" will at least allow you to call up the window faster than using menus. I assigned Ctrl-Shift-P because I don't care about setting poster frames and I can remember the "P" for "playback".


          I don't see any way to select or deselect the monitor via the keyboard. At least not from within Premiere Pro. If you were a moderately talented programmer, there are ways to control Premiere Pro from outside of the program itself. I used to write programs to control other programs but I haven't done so since about 1994.

            The Program Monitor has to be 'selected' (yellow outline) when you hit the CTRL+` combo.  This will maximize the playback on your primary GUI display.

              Thanks Steven and Jim, I appreciate both your answers. What I've I've since discovered is if I keep the Premier Pro Reference Monitor up on my left hand monitor that I'm not editing on, whenever I want to go full screen on that monitor all I have to do, as Jim says, is highlight it then press F2 (which I programmed for full screen) and bob's your uncle. Not quite as seemless as Media Composer's toggle button, but a work-around!


              Many thanks guys for your time,

                On my plain vanilla install (Window) it's Ctrl+' which works perfectly. I had the same issue going into the playback menu and select a monitor which was quite tedious.
