  • Bug Full Screen doesn't work on Mac OS after drawing a shape

    I have the newest Foxit Reader version as of now ( and I actually must switch away from it, as it is unusable in the current state.
    My OS is Big Sur 11.4.

    When I open a document I almost always read it in full screen mode, as I like to hide distractions and my screen is small (13.3" macbook screen).

    I open/exit the full screen with Cmd+L shortcut, but it is also possible to enter through menu bar > view > Full Screen.

    As it is impossible to draw shapes (e.g. underline some text with red line) in full screen mode, I exit full screen, draw the line and want to go back to full screen, but then it's impossible.

    The shortcut doesn't work anymore and the button in the menu bar > view section is greyed out.

    I have to close the application and open it again to enter full screen - this is absolutely a deal breaker. After doing this for a couple of hundred times I must say enough is enough.

    I will try to download older version of the software as I don't remember having such a bug before, but if it doesn't work I will have to switch to some other tool

    Really a pity as otherwise I quite like the app and I enforced it in my company.

    mcaay ,We apologize for the trouble. This issue has been submitted to our internal bug tracking system for our QA team to do further analysis with report ID#MACLNX-10680. For your current workaround, please help to make sure to close the right panel firstly prior to clicking on the full-screen icon again to enter into full-screen mode.
