Will Sketchbook Pro take advantage of fullscreen mode on Mac OSX?

I really love Sketchbook Pro 6 so far, but there's one thing I'd like to see the app take advantage of and that's fullscreen mode on Mac OSX.

Apps like Pixelmator and Chrome use this to great effect and I think Sketchbook Pro would really benefit from a 'distraction free' mode that takes advantage of all the real estate available on screen.

Hi James

Please try to use the shot key : command +option + J
You will see the full screen sketchbook pro.

Thanks

Hmm

Sorry to but in here but:

When I use that hot key all that happens is I end up with a NON drawable area at the top and bottom of the main screen area. Exactly where the osx top toolbar was and a same area at the bottom.

Neither area can I draw on!

Suggestion - would it not be easier to fully embrace the new full screen stuff with the maximize icon in the top right like chrome and so on do ? After all this versin of SB is suposed to be optimized for latest OSX is it not ?

Oh and don't take this the wrong way - tis still a super cool app. Just a shame to not do the 100% thing on full screen for a drawing app of all things :)

Hi Huw

If you use this hot key make sure you create a new image(ctrl+ n/command +0) after you set it to full screen.

By the way most of the tool on the top toolbar were in the lagoon( left down corner)

Thanks

Hi Eric,

I think what us Mac users were expecting was the diagonal double-arrow symbol at the top right corner of the app. Thanks for sharing the shortcut!

I prefer to use a Mac painting software
named MyBrushes .The whole drawing process could be saved as drawing video and playback anytime.
