On OS X 10.9.1 Lightroom 5.3 switches to Normal Screen Mode when exiting Full Screen Preview, ignoring the previously set Screen Mode.

Exiting Full Screen Preview (hotkey: F) switches the Screen Mode back to Normal. Problem seems to be specific to OS X.

If you exit using F key, it should go back to your previous view. Exiting using other keys does revert to normal window mode though (and yes, that's a bug)

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question, Victoria. I stand corrected: Exit using the F key does indeed bring me back to the previous screen mode in 5.3. I guess I was either subconsciously pressing G or D to go straight to the desired module or this has been fixed in in 5.3.

Anyhow, using the F key to enter _and_ exist Full Screen Preview works well enough for me right now. Once again thank you for helping me out.
