FCP 7 in Yosemite - full screen playback is no longer full screen
on Apr 11, 2016 at 5:15:18 pm

I've recently upgraded my OS to Yosemite from Mountain Lion, and am still using FCP 7 for older projects.
I've noticed that if I play back on a second monitor in full screen, the menu bar in the top remains visible (which it didn't use to do in Mountain Lion), and so it is no longer true full screen… has anybody found a setting or workaround to get true full screen back, i.e. make the menu bar disappear?

Thanks!

Easy: go back to Mountain Lion. Ask yourself which is more important, a sparkly-new OS or a properly-functioning FCP.

Please remember that FCP7 is six years old and has not been supported by Apple for four of those years. Apple does not care one bit if FCP7 runs properly under new operating systems.

Yes I'd thought of that - which is fine for my edit work station but not so fine for the laptop... I was just hoping against hope there might be a workaround I don't know about before I commit to working across two OSses. Thanks anyway :)

If I edited for a living, I would be more concerned that my editing software functioned properly, and would deal with the comparatively trivial problems of two different operating systems.

Well, maybe not. I might adopt an editing application meant to run on a new operating system. Avid and Premiere Pro come to mind. Perhaps even one of the freebies from Blackmagic.

" on a second monitor in full screen, the menu bar in the top remains visible "

this is a OS issue, not FCP

go to system prefs, Mission Control (i think)
turn OFF "second screen is a separate space" or something along those lines.

That works!! I just unticked 'displays have separate spaces'
I'd been looking in the display preferences but of course it's a mission control feature.

Thanks you so much!

SOLVED
