Unusable Full-screen Mode

Last updated December 22, 2011 - Send Feedback

Status: still broken in Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2.

I run a dual-monitor system (and sometimes three).

The Mac OS X Lion full-screen feature is supposed to make the viewing experience nicer, but it’s useless to me.


Here’s my nicely-sized full-screen viewing experience on my 27" display, which I position vertically:

Hitting the full-screen control gives me this wonderful blank screen, and moves my window to the 30" display, which now truncates the contents at top and bottom.
