I love using the fullscreen option for many programs on the Mac OS X, so that I can swipe back and forth between them. Are you considering developing a fullscreen option native to the Mac OS X? It's the green button on windows at the top left corner that you can press to get a full screen in many programs native to the Mac and ones that are developed by other developers (e.g. Google for Chrome; Opera; etc.)

Pretty Please!

Yes I agree, it would be very convenient. It makes it difficult to use LibreOffice on my macbook air which only has an 11" screen.

I also desire this functionality. Frankly, I am shocked it is not one of the first considerations. It is very helpful for many reasons to have a full page functionality. I love LibreOffice... please, developers, consider adding this! It is the only app on my Mac I cannot do this with!

I have seen this request couple of years and I would say that using native full-screen is not a priority for the team. :(

I understand. I still use Open Office because I love the native full screen. It helps my work flow. And I long for the functionality that Libre Office offers.

Thanks for considering.
