Description Nathaniel Taylor 2005-10-19 01:31:51 UTC
Version:           0.5 (using KDE KDE 3.4.91)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
OS:                Linux

I have come across a pdf file that apparently "requests full screen mode".

So, opening it I get a message that the document has requested this mode and will therefore get it, but nothing to let me avoid this.  Nor can I find any setting that does this by default.

Please provide these surely simple possibilities.  Having a document open as expected (in a window that doesn't cover all others and have to be escaped out of) is something a user should be able to control, just as with a good webbrowser that allows fullscreen and popups to be denied.  It makes the "user experience" much more pleasant.

(BTW, kpdf fills a gap that I was sorely noticing;  it has developed remarkably quickly -- well done!)

Unpromoting to wish, it's not a bug to follow the specs.

Also unfortunately this will have to wait until KDE4 as KDE 3.5 is already message frozen, and "fixing" this would add the new for a new user visible message.

it's time to get this in, I think.

KMail get's a completely new template-engine (with lots of strings), so this simple thing really should be able to get in.

And otherwise: okular is on the way, does it have this capability yet?

This will not be implemented in KPDF (for reasons identified above, and also since development work has moved to Okular).

The requested behaviour is fully implemented in Okular.
