P: Support for native full-screen mode on macOS

I must say that full screen apps is a wonderful idea. I can start in such a way some of the apple apps (safari, imail, numbers) - I like switching between them. It will be desirable to enable this option for Ligtroom & Photoshop (both CS and Elements) to behave in similar way under new Mission Control stuff...

As of versions 6.6 and CC2015.6, this is supported in Lightroom.

I thought I'd take a moment to outline OS X's fullscreen mode in relation to Photoshop's Full Screen Modes and explain why we stuck with our Full Screen Mode:

Here's the short story: If we replace Photoshop's Full Screen mode with the native 10.7 full screen mode, then our users will loose the following functionality:


  • The ability to use multiple displays while in fullscreen mode

  • The ability to switch between different document windows while in fullscreen mode


This in not something our long...

The lack of no "Mac OS" full screen mode illustrates a fundamental flaw in Adobe's UI: a tunnel vision of an exclusive digital biotope.

Adobe is a dinosaur thats lost touch with it's target market. If theres any industry on earth where you really need to be making good ux and ui,  it's the industry that caters to the ux and ui designers. This is how Blackberry and Nokia became what they are today - no vision and a disconnect to their customers.

This is a problem that goes back quite some time. Lightroom full-screen is very nice, you get all the screen space and the tab is named "Lightroom". I noticed that Nimbus follows the Lightroom model. I don't know why Photoshop doesn't follow suit.

Please Adobe - make the UX consistent for the imaging applications!

It's been 6 years and this is a basic OS functionality. I use Mac's native fullscreen mode for my work every day (except for Adobe apps of course which I pile on top of one another on the desktop.) Please please please consider updating your apps to support this unless you are secretly trying to get your customers to switch to PCs or something.

Out of the blue, I can't go fullscreen on Photoshop. I have the latest Photoshop CC, MacBook Pro, High Sierra, the green expand button on the left upper side of the window has the "+" instead of the fullscreen button. Anyone has the same problem? Gone, poof!! It works in other apps (Lightroom included)

Hi,

Maximising the window is not supported on Photoshop CC 2017 release under the new Mission Control in High Sierra. As of versions Lightroom CC (2015), this feature is supported.

However, if you wish to go full screen mode, you can do so by selecting the "Full Screen Mode With Menu Bar" option;

Photoshop does not have the green Full-screen double-headed arrow button on Photoshop or Bridge in either my Sierra or High Sierra laptops. Just the Green +

That sounds normal. Pressing F on your keyboard will get your image into Fullscreen.

Hi Eashan,

I had the ability to do that earlier yesterday, to use the little green button with the two arrows. I didn't change anything in my system, it just changed to the + out of nowhere.

But more important look what happens when I go to full screen mode (A bar where the dock was stays there, and adobe won't let me expand the window beyond that. I know it's kinda hard to see, my wallpaper is a bit dark.)

I know I can hide the toolbar (in all screens), but I don't want to do that. Fullscreen mode works fine in Chrome, Lightroom and all other apps (the dock disappears, and windows go all the way to the edge of the screen)

I did some further research, came across this page:

Installing the plug in took care of the problem.

Hey Adobe, just to not let this feature request die: Please give your apps a real MacOS fullscreen mode. The world out there isn't all just CreativeCloud, there are rules even you are well advised to stick to (like native OS functions).

This is still the biggest daily frustration I have with Photoshop and with every new version it's the thing I hope most will be fixed. I can full-screen most other apps, and flick between them effortlessly, but not the heavyweight trio of Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign. Even the youthful Muse falls short in this respect. In fact, of the Adobe apps in my dock only Xd seems to have seen the light, which is perhaps why its icon has nicely rounded corners, to signify that it will be more comfortable to handle.

Please, please, please, on bended knees I plead to you Adobe: put my many years of license payments and monthly subscriptions to good use and fix this!

The "many years of license payments and monthly subscriptions" is the reason they don't fix it. Adobe doesn't need us.

This is unacceptable, I pay monthly for a program that doesn't support the mac way of moving fullscreen apps to spaces.

Yet Lightroom offers this functionality. WHAT IS GOING ON!

For a while now i have not been able to go fullscreen in Photoshop. Instead of the 2 arrows you have to expand to window and make it fullscreen. It randomly became a '+' sign. Lightroom isn't affected by this problem, but photoshop cc 2018 is. Contacted the customer service and we have literally tried everything but nothing seems to work. After doing some research i found out this exact problem came up during photoshop 2017 and an older MacOS sierra version.. 

I need to fix this..

It’s not the point. Adobe needs to support the native full screen mode that nearly all other professional software on the Mac does. It’s about more than the dock. With the dues I’ve paid for CC they could hire a team to sort this problem out, they just don’t.

This definitely works. Thanks Shivams. But they still need to make it like photoshop where you can go full screen without using trick just following minimising tools.
