Don't see that LOGOS uses the full screen mode available in LION IOS. Would love to be able to use it with Keynote, Pages and other apps that use it.

Steve - 

First, welcome to the forums! 

David Mitchell, the Technical Lead at Logos, has said that they are "thinking about" it. I agree, it would be a great feature!

Just as a helpful hint: There are different topics in the forums. The forum you posted in "General," is kind of a catch all. Here you will find out about new resources. There is also a Mac Forum and a Suggestions forum which may have been a better place to post this thread. We would not want PC users to get confused or covetous Big Smile

Option: can vote for Logos User Voice suggestion => Logos 4 Mac Enhancements

"Please add full screen button for OS X Lion along with multi-finger gesturing for Magic Mouse, Magic TrackPad, and MacBook track pads on all supported Mac OS X versions."

Even though I am a (hopefully neither confused nor covetous) PC User, I do hope that Logos will make the MAC experience as fantastic as possible for all the newest MAC platforms. Whatever makes Logos more useful to users gets a thumbs up from me.

See? Yes

What a great sentiment from a PC user Smile

I just installed Lion yesterday, and I have to admit, I REALLY want to see Full Screen mode come to Logos. It's hard for me to vote for it (there are other things more important), but hopefully it is a small thing for the developers to do and can be implemented in the not-too-distant future.

The only thing Logos should be "thinking about" is whether to add it in 4.3.x or 4.4. If they don't add it then once again Logos is not making a real OS X piece of software but something that just runs on top of OS X.

OK. That does it. Microsoft Office 2011 beat Logos to Lion full screen implementation. Stick out tongue

At first I was confused because I thought you all should be talking about the up and coming release of MOUNTAIN Lion, then I realized this thread is over seven months old.

So I came across this thread trying to figure out how to enter full screen mode, then realized that wasn't going to happen.

I did come across a solution though it's not perfect. If you select the "1 Tile" layout and then choose Reading View or type Shift-Option-F then you'll essentially get the same thing as if you had pressed a  button. The only problem is that you can't get a multiple tile layout to show up this way.

So, it's not a perfect solution, but it's at least one way of having the entire screen available.

Jeff- 

If you are more adventurous and techie than I am, there are some scripts that you can use to force Logos to utilize full screen mode. Some other users have used it, but I don't have the link to the thread right now. It is my understanding that anytime Logos updates, you will have to redo the fix.

Logos 4 Mac forum has => Lion Full Screen capability in Logos 4 Mac that includes links to steps for enabling full screen in OS X Lion, which has to be repeated for each Logos 4 Mac release.
