A TRUE Full Screen Mode & Multiple Files

By default I prefer the "Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar" (under View->Screen Mode) because it's a free canvas/ or allows for a more customized interface.

 

THE ISSUE IS: that upon entering this Screen Mode, your file tabs disappear (guess its not included in your "Menu Bar"), and often I'm working on multiple files when it comes to CG textures or kit-bashing assets from multiple files for a concept.

 

(Example: I made a psd full of Halftone patterns/folders/groups which I drag & drop into other psd's/concept pieces/CG Textures)

 

This is a small thing, I know, but it would be great to not feel punished for wanting a free canvas.

 

Really appreciate the hard work programmers,

Cant wait to see next update

Better Example: While working on my piece in "Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar", if I then want to open new files to kit-bash from, I'd have to CLOSE OUT of screen mode into "Standard" to even see other opened files. Once I've drag-dropped what I needed, I'd have to go BACK into "Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar" to keep my free canvas.

its just a lot of unnecessary back & forth that could be simplified for a quicker/more free workflow

Just a thought - do you have room on your desk for a second monitor? I use two screens and have done for a few years now. I don't think I could go back to the single screen now...
Put your main work in one screen for example, and then Window -> Arrange -> Float in Window - and drag the floating window on to the second screen.  ... for example.

Try using regular view or "full screen", but tap the "tab" key to toggle all tools and panels on/off. That might be close to what you are looking for. Have to keep toggling between w/ tab though.
