Open Lightroom Classic 7.5 on MacOS 10.14 and click on green button to fo full-screen. Sometimes the title bar disappears (i.e. there is no "Lightroom Catalog.lrcat - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic - Library" or red, orange, green buttons. To exit full screen you have to elect from the menu bar Window -> Exit Full Screen.

This only started happening after upgrading to 10.14 on Monday.

Did you perhaps toggle the full-screen mode inadvertently with Shift-F? Try cycling through your modes with that to see if that solves your problem?

Not sure I understand the question. The title bar should be visible regardless of mode.

One thing I noticed. When it is not visible in full-screen mode, if I click below the menu bar (where it should be) it reappears.

I'm guessing this is a Mojave bug as it LR never behaved like this before.

I see the same bug.  In addition, the when attempting to show the Mac title bar so as to display the red, yellow, and green dots, the Navigator Pane gets in the way, blocking all but the red dot.

Finally, the custom graphic which I have been using for years acts as if it is suddenly too large (more than 57? pixels high) and is obscured by the Navigator.

Surely.  As soon as I get back from a orca shoot with the local whale researchers—first time the Mexican Transient pod has been spoted in SoCal in 30 years—I'll send you one.  Just packing my gear at the moment and LR is shutdown.

Hi Nicholas,

Even in 10.13, The Title bar is hidden when you go to fullscreen using Green button.
Title bar appears on hovering as shown in screen below?



Is this the same behaviour you reported or something else?

Thanks,
Bhargav

Not quite.  On my setup, the Navigator window covers the yelow and green buttons.

I understand your comment and that happens most of the time. 

But sometimes the title bar disappears in full screen mode :- 



And I only started to see this behavior with 10.14.

Does Title bar reappear when you click below the Mac Menu bar?

Thanks,

I want to be clear this is an intermittent problem i.e. I can not reliably reproduce the issue. However going from normal to full screen mode a few times, one tine the title bar disappeared. When I clicked just below the menu bar the title bar did reappear.

What I described only happens in full screen mode when I try to hover over the buttons to leave full screen mode.  Pressing the Escape key does nothing; neither does the Command <forgot the key at the moment>.  I have to close LR and then restart.

I haven't seen what you describe.  Seems there are a few issues here, including what I mentioned about the custom graphic above.
