"Full Screen" on iMac

More of an observation.  Since traveling up the 6500 learning curve, I've come across all sorts of epiphanies.  The other day I moved the SDR screen (2 pan adaptors open) from monitor 1 to 2.  Suddenly it was dead in the water.  running but I couldn't find the Title Bar "Flex Radio Systems," no file, settings, nada.  Couldn't control anything.  A couple more attempts and "poof" vanished completely, but still running in back ground.  Called Dudley for moral support.

Turned out the problem is "unique" with Mac (or so others have told me).  When you hit the "full screen" button your life changes in unpleasant ways.  So if you can't find your title bar, can't control anything, only see the SDR title bar...look to your "Full Screen" button.  Get rid of that and everything works just fine.

Of course there may be Mac experts out there than have a better description of what happened....like I'm computer illiterate, but maybe this will be of value to some who are also new to Flexradios.

73, Bill

    What system and VM are you using? I've not experienced this on my Mac (Yosemite) with Parallels 10.

    Hi Bill:

    If you are referring to the GREEN button as the "full screen" button, then you can generally reverse its effect by hitting the ESC button.  See if that works for you.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
