Bug: OS X menu bar disappears after full screen

Bug: OS X menu bar disappears after full screen

Postby mbulat on Mon Jun 25, 2012 2:32 pm

On exiting simple full screen mode on OS X Lion (10.7.4), the main OS X menu bar for Sublime text disappears. This only occurs when using "use_simple_full_screen" mode. The menu can be made to reappear by switching to a different application and then switching back.

I can replicate the bug by doing the following:

0. "use_simple_full_screen": true
1. Select "Enter Full Screen"
2. Select "Exit Full Screen" (menu is gone)
3. Switch to different app
4. Switch back (menu is back)

Fwiw, this only happens when you use the mouse to select View > Full Screen/Exit Full Screen -- the keyboard shortcuts don't exhibit this behavior. (I was trying to replicate and couldn't until I used the mouse.)

There's a similar bug I've been meaning to report, perhaps they're related -- when you have two windows open in (simple) fullscreen and close one of them, the OS X menu bar reappears for the remaining open fullscreen window(s). You have to exit and re-enter fullscreen (cmd-ctrl-f x 2) to make the menu bar disappear again.

To replicate this bug:
0. ye olde "use_simple_full_screen": true
1. open two windows (cmd-shift-n x 2)
2. fullscreen both of them (cmd-ctrl-f, cmd-`, cmd-ctrl-f)
3. exit one window (cmd-shift-w)
4. menu bar shows on remaining fullscreen window
