DFH Full-screen view, (e.g.) with F11 ? 2017-12-19 10:23:45
Suggest provide typical Windows functionality for full screen view.

1. Via the View Menu
2. Via the F11 function key
3. Via a new toolbar icon

In full screen view, the title bar, menu bar, tool bar and status bar would be hidden.

NB. In full screen view, the Diff Pane should remain as it was, either hidden or in view.

Use existing fast keys to go to next/previous diff, etc.

Escape from full screen view via:
1. The ESC key
2. The F11 key again
3. A miniaturised icon at top right

Admin:
yeah sure why not, the title bar can be hidden as well. I'm not sure when you would use this in a diff tool though, I typically open and close files pretty fast and seldom work for long periods inside the tool, which is when you would typically use this I guess. What would your use case be?

If you're debugging a script (or a TextPipe filter in my case), a typical use case might be to have the input and output file open in Diffinity.

The session could be prolonged, lasting days even.

btw. If you've never seen TextPipe, I'm sure you'd like it.
