Full Screen Mode is also known as Presentation Mode

Full-Screen mode displays only the contents of the document

  • all other window decorations are not displayed in this mode
    • menus
    • tool bars
    • scroll bars
    • status bar at bottom of screen

The mode is very useful when using a projector

  • enlarges displayed object somewhat
  • does not display extraneous window decorations

Essential navigation tools, PgUp, PgDn, mouse clicks continue having their usual effect in Full-Screen mode

Two means are often available for entering Presentation Mode.

  • click on the toolbar icon Presentation/Full-screen Mode View-presentation.png
  • or access from the menu
-> View -> Presentation/Full-screen Mode View-fullscreen.png
  • alternatively some Apps use the menu heading
-> Slide Show -> Start from first/any Slide

Note that either of the icons above may be used, in either context, by a particular App, but have the same effect

The generally used method of exiting Full Screen Mode and returning to normal display is to press ESC key.

Many recent verions of Apps have Full-Screen Mode, including

  • LibreOffice
  • Firefox
  • PDF readers

Full-Screen Mode is at its most effective when the document has been prepared in Landscape orientation
