Lightroom: Show Filmstrip arrow gone after restoring from minimized state

When in full-screen mode with all panels hidden, the Flimstrip can be shown by hovering over a "up arrow" on the bottom of the screen.

Now when Lighroom is minimized using Win+D shortcut, and restored later, the "up arrow" to show the Filmstrip is gone until I cycle through to all the screen modes, and back to full-screen mode.

My system:
Win 7 64bit Ultimate
Dell Studio 1558 with i7, 1gb ATI Radion 5470 and 8gb RAM.

Hi Faisal,

Thanks for the report. I can reproduce the problem, and have entered it in our bug database.

I believe the same cause has the effect of showing the menu bar, after LR is re-activated to full-screen mode.

It seems the vertical positioning of the application is wrong after it is re-activated.

(LR 3.4, Windows XP)

Yep, the whole windows just shifts down, hiding the filmstrip arrow at the bottom, but displaying the menu on top instead.

This is must be a 1.0 bug and is sooo annoying.

Using Lightroom 4.2 on Win7, working in fullscreen mode with hidden menu bar to get maximal working space. When switching to another application and back, menu bar gets visible and I have to hide it again. Fixing this would be very nice :)

I have LR 4.1 running on Windows 7 x64 with dual displays - Main display on right. In dual display mode, I configure for Full Screen mode - so menu bars etc are hidden. If I then minimise LR and then maximise again, the menu bar appears. Checking the 'Windows' LR thinks it is still in 'Full Screen' mode, and not 'Full Screen with menubar'. This is a minor annoyance, but has been the case since LR2 certainly.

To reproduce the issue:
Configure a PC with Windows 7 x64. Install LR4.1 64bit
With dual displays, configure display properties in Windows to set the right hand monitor as primary, left hand as secondary. Drag the Taskbar onto the secondary display (left hand monitor), so that the primary monitor allows a full screen to be used for LR.
Launch LR4.1, enable dual display mode. (I have thumbs on left screen and loupe on right, but this is not important as issue will transpire regardless of layout or LR module being used). Press 'F' to cycle through display modes until full screen is displayed. Click the LR icon on the task bar to minimise LR. Click it again to maximise LR.
Result: the menu bar is now displayed even though LR believes it is in 'Full Screen' mode.
Further notes: This happens on both my current workstation build with ATI FirePro graphics, and my old workstation with nVidia GeForce graphics, so not a graphics driver related issue.
