Feature Request: "Toggle Fullscreen" button in main toolbar

I know toggling fullscreen can be done with the F11 key, but I think it'd be great to have the option to do it from the main toolbar.

I just installed OpenCPN on a Raspberry Pi coupled with a 10.1" touch screen, and it looks / works pretty well in full screen, but I have to plug in my keyboard each time I want to toggle the full screen mode.

Full screen is pretty much mandatory if you want to use night mode IMO, because otherwise the bright window decorations / menu bars blind you and you can't see anything.

That would also make it more discoverable, because currently it's not even in the settings. The only way is by using F11.

Have you tried the "Menu Bar", where there is an entry for Full Screen?

Yeah, that works, but the menu bar is still very bright, so I need to hide it for night mode. I know I can use the Alt key to do that, but that brings me back to square one.

What you say makes sense, especially as those who don't want this button in the main (left) toolbar easily can hide it (same as with all other buttons.
Please make a feature request in the tracker.https://opencpn.org/flyspray/
I'll vote for it.

Btw. Is there a opportunity to start opencpn in full screen mode by default?

Thomas, looks like there already is a request in the tracker: https://opencpn.org/flyspray/index.p...s&task_id=2343

Harry, in OpenPlotter 2 there is an option to start OpenCPN on boot, and also to make it full-screen. You can also use the "-fullscreen" command-line flag (you can edit your link or menu item to add that flag, usually)

Thank you very much! This is what I was looking for...
