One of the new features of OS X Lion is the ability of working with applications in full screen mode. Working in full screen mode is very practical when you want to concentrate on one application and make full use of your screen. This option has been implemented in Merlin as well, so when using a Merlin version 2.8 or newer which is running on OS X Lion, just click on the appropriate button and see Merlin hiding the menu bar and switching the current view of your projects in full screen mode. If you need a menu item, just move the mouse towards the top of the window and Merlin blends the menu bar along with the toolbar for you. But what would you want Merlin to do when running in full screen mode?
What should happen with the toolbar when Merlin runs in full screen mode?
You need the toolbar to switch from view to view, to call the library or the elements area, toggle the inspector’s display, check the project settings, or start publishing. You don’t need the toolbar when scheduling, updating your project’s tasks or maybe presenting the project’s schedule to stakeholders.
So what do you think? Should Merlin’s full screen mode in Lion show up, with or without the toolbar? We are very curious to read your thoughts…
