No matter what catalog I switch to it behaves this way... I know the fix is obvious, but I can't fix it.
I'm no dufus... I can make B+W photos of all sorts from RAF files that really sing.... been using LR with great success since 1.1 and Beta days.
Since you don't say what version of Lightroom you are using ...
Either the letter F or Shift-F will cycle you through the different full-screen/partial screen modes.
Wow been putting up with this screen size issue for almost a year.
Thanks... and sorry if I started a stupid thread.
I'll chime in and help someone on working Raw files various color balance/temp to approximate the look of near infrared films, and tri-x.
I don't go for those filter apps... I seem to be able to do just as well on my own.
Cheers and thank you.
