Would you please add margins to the full screen mode? I like clearing distractions by looking at a black screen, but I don't like the text stretching from one edge to the other of my screen (even on my 14" laptop it is annoyingly wide).

I very much agree with this idea, I have a very wide screen (1920x1080) and I think it would be easier to write if there were margins from the left and right side of the screen for a more centered writing experience, perhaps changeable by a setting like in Scrivener. Right now it feels you are writing on an A4 which has been turned.

Here's a picture of the settings in Scrivener while in fullscreen mode. You can set the width of the paper, where it is aligned and the power of the darkness covering the rest of your desktop or whatever else you have in the background.

I have an old non-widescreen laptop. This would make the writing space very narrow.
If you want to it's possible to adjust the size of the interface by disabling full screen and opening WOD then adjusting the size. Next time you open it (disabling full screen) it will open at the set size.
I've found this really useful when having notepad notes down one side of the screen, notes of the details/basic ideas I've wanted to include in a scene.

That's a wonderful idea, thanks for sharing! I've got to try it out. However, I would still like a setting for it in the program itself, but maybe that is too much to ask for. Thanks for the tip!
