I never use fullscreen mode, and I often accidentally activate various controls while painting.
Could you provide mockups to help illustrate your proposal? What would be the advantages than just going fullscreen and using the hide controls? Plus what would be the challenges to address this(this question is more for developers)?
Sure. Here you go:
Apart from those things it would also make the UI more consistent if things doesn’t just work in one mode.
Same issue for me. I really love MyPaint but as much as i can remember the 0.8-0.9 (maybe) versions you could use Tab to hide every panel and tool in windowed mode (i clearly remember i set one of the Bamboo button to Tab to use it), and im a bit sad thats not the case right now.
Also, the advantage of it is when u need to paint in windowed mode cause u use reference, photo etc and u only have one monitor.
I would be really happy if we could improve this
