Is there a way to hide menu bars to get more vertical reading space? See my attempted layout...

I figured that I could open the tab in a floating window (not ideal), yet is a marked improvement (below). But it does not solve the problem completely. Reading mode does not help since it forces the app to go into fullscreen mode. As you can see from the attached images, I'm trying to avoid fullscreen mode.

Hi John,

You've already got the number of menu bars in Logos down to the minimum, so sorry, you can't hide anymore.

There are two things you could do to squeeze in a bit more space:

1) Hide the macOS menu bar. Go to System Preferences | General | Automatically Hide and Show the menu bar. That will give you 23 more pixels of vertical space.

2) Reduce the Program Scaling in Logos. I tested this and on my system, reducing the program scaling by 10% will yield 12 more pixels of vertical space. Go to the Settings panel in Logos and find Program Scaling to do this.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks Levi, those are two helpful suggestions. Since it seems like there's no way to hide the menu bars further, I'll go ahead and add it as a feature request. When you're vying for every pixel possible on a limited screen size, hiding menu bars can make a significant difference.

In addition to Levi's suggestions, I'd recommend opening the tab group in a floating window, which will eliminate the space needed for the app toolbar at the top. Right-click the tab, "Open all in a floating window."

That's what I did in my second screenshot above. If you compare the two screenshots, you'll see that the main toolbar is eliminated in the second image. But I'm still trying to get 100% of the screen real estate devoted to the resource text itself. I added a suggestion...
