Hi Jorgensen,

There are "Save", "Retain", and "Reset" options, which are almost exactly what you're looking for. Here is how to utilize them:
  1. Assign an F11 hotkey to (Menu) Window Settings -> Retain command.
  2. Assign an F12 hotkey to (Menu) Window Settings -> Reset command.
  3. Use WindowSettings UI to hide all the elements you would want hidden in fullscreen mode.
  4. Click on the Save button and close the UI
Use F11 and F12 keys to toggle between fullscreen mode.

I know that you are looking for a single hotkey to do both, so that's a good request.

Thanks Anton

Just what I was looking for. Not sure what happens, but it works.

And it's not a problem using two keys.

@khaeid Update to the latest version of AMS Library to rid of the error.

I am already using the last version of the library 3.5.2, and I uninstalled both Library and Windows settings now and installed them again, and still have the same error

Thanks for this plug in! It works great on my Win7 PC! One request for me would be to have the ability to turn off the header for all the floating toolbars. I have a bunch on my secondary screen and the name headers take up a ton of room that I could utilize to better organize those floaters. Thanks again!

Hello everyone,

Well! it's been years that I use SU and I did not know it great plugin.
Thank you Anton, Bravo! :enlight:

It was while researching the procedure to follow to buy a license of Clothworks that I discovered it.

Hi! This plugin should work with SU2020 just as fine, provided you have the latest versions of the AMS Library and the Windows Settings plugins installed.

Oh, splendid.
Than you.

Alas I have noticed one issue with the plugin.
Once active whilst I open/activate a toolbar it is completely frozen. As if it does exist on the screen except its visual presence there.
The only way to touch it with the effect is to disable/unable an option Setting-Toolbar Containers. But in that case some docked icon are slightly displaced. Have to replace them.

I will appreciate any piece of advice.
Thank you in advance.

Could you elaborate what's going on, perhaps with a screenshot? I am not able to quite make out what's going on.

Hello,

There is nothing to be illustrated. Just opened toolbar. I cannot move it (a cursor becomes white while moving it on it) no button (tools) can be clicked.

When I uncheck the option Toolbar Containers (via menu, as above) docked toolbars disappear and then I can move the previously dead toolbar. After checking the Toolbar Containers (menu) all seems be back to normal. Except the docked toolbars which are displaced slightly, vertically.

Hope it is more clear, or less confusing.

Thank you.

PS
The same symptoms are present on different computers with SU 2020 Pro.
Also after SU opened there tool tooltips are not available.
Switching on/of Toolbar Containetrs (menu-widows-setting) make them appeared back.

When you say, "toolbar", do you the Window Settings UI or any SketchUp toolbar, such as the Principal/Edit?

pipinek wrote:Also after SU opened there tool tooltips are not available.

This could be due to the fact that you have the "Retain on Start" option checked, which applies your saved settings when you open SketchUp. And your save settings have the toolbar container marked as hidden. To fix this, either disable the "Retain on Start" option or "Save" the desired layout, which you would want applied when you restart Sketchup.

As a side note, I do realize the Window Settings UI is a little old and could use some improvements and reduction in size. I am looking forward to updating this plugin. Thanks.

Confirmed it works on SU 2020, though I do note that the Sketchup warehouse version of the required AMS Library is not the most recent (it is currently v3.5.2, whereas Sketchucation version is v3.6.oh)
So make sure you use the Sketchucation files until the warehouse is also updated.
Great work this is very useful for client presentations
