How to allways show navigation bar in fullscreen mode?

Post by cew » Wed Oct 24, 2018 11:40 am

Hi all!

How can I force the navigation bar to be allways visible in fullscreen mode?
On a mobile device, you can't navigate without that, even when "Show Pages Navigation Bar" is set in the preferences.

Best regards

Hello cew,

You need to set that checkbox programmatically?

Cheers,
Alex

That does not make a difference.
I would set it in code at the editors initialization.

Even if the checkbox is activated, the navigation bar disappears after aabout 5 seconds.
Then it's not possible to navigate without a keyboard, because the navigation bar only gets visible on mouse over.
If you have a mobile device without a mouse, you're done.

Best regards
cew

Hello cew,

From what I know when you click on the place where it should be - it should appear again.

Alex

I just tried it, you're right.
But... how the hell should the user be aware of that? :)


Is there a way to disable the hiding the control?

Hi cew.
But... how the hell should the user be aware of that?
In normal situation when you activated the full-screen then this mini-toolbar shows automatically in left-bottom corner, then after 3 seconds of idle time - it disappears. I guess - it is enough to notice that toolbar. BUT it seems that this toolbar does not automatically appear for you when full-screen mode is activated. Can you confirm this wrong behavior on your side?

Cheers.

Hi,

as I wrote above, the editor behaves as you have described.
But if the user does not notice the bar, he's caugth in the full fullscreen mode and has no idea how to get back to normal view.

Is there a way to sets it to be visible so I could use e.g. a timer that does this job every 2 seconds?

Best regards,
cew

Hello cew,

From what I see, that is possible to do, but not very straightforward - I've asked my colleague to look into this and see whether we can give a solution.
