Full screen mode toolbars and continuous scrolling?

Post by hsrstud » Wed Nov 11, 2009 5:51 am

Is it possible to keep toolbars in full screen mode? I know this might seem counter intuitive, but the only reason I use full screen mode is to remove the upper portion of the window, however; I still want to use my toolbar. I just want the toolbar to be moved up to the space that was previously occupied by the header portion of the window in the normal viewing mode. Removing the window header makes a significant difference in screen "real estate" for me, since I often read PDFs using a netbook.

Also, is it possible to set continuous scrolling in full screen mode?

Right-click on a toolbar to open the customise dialogue. Right-click on the view toolbars submenu to customise the shortcuts for showing/hiding any particular toolbar. The shortcuts will work in fullscreen mode. Add a toolbar icon to switch view modes.

I have one follow-up question. Is there anyway to change the default setting for full screen mode to use continuous scrolling as can be done for the normal viewing mode in Preferences > Page Display? I realize I can change this setting manually by using a toolbar button in full screen mode now, but I guess I'm lazy and it would be nice to have this setting carried over from the normal viewing mode.

Actually, I have two more follow-up questions. Is it possible to open PDFs directly into full screen mode and to close completely out of the PDF-XChanger viewer within full screen mode? Currently, to exit PDF-Xchange, I'm hitting the Esc key and then closing the PDF-XChange viewer window.

Thanks again!

Hi hsrstud,
First I'll address the continuous view question. An improvement you can create would be to add a hot-key combo for continuous view that you can invoke during full screen.

1) Right Click the toolbar and choose customize
2) Click the Commands Tab, and click View under categories
3)Scroll down until you see "Continuous" and double click it
4) Set the key combo you want in shortcut, Keys
5)Click OK

Then you can F12 to goto Fullscreen and "Your-choice" to invoke Continuous View

Hope that helps, I'll look into your next question

Chris
