I am new to MAX/Msp so this question may seem a bit elementary. Having created some really nice visual effects I’m using jit.window to display the results on my computer screen. But when I click the full-screen command (top right corner in windows) the blue bars are still visible top and bottom. I want a full screen with nothing on it except the contents of jit.window. Pressing F11 doesn’t do it either. Can anyone help?
As fas as I know, jit.window can only go fullscreen on a second monitor. You would drag the window there and then press escape (at least oon mac) to switch between normal and fullscreenmode. If you do not have a second screen you could do the following: Make you patch with only jit.pwindow in presentation mode and a fullscreen message to thispatcher. When you go fullscreen, your patch will show the patch without any bars.
For fullscreen with thispatcher: toogle –> message ‘fullscreen $1′ –> thispatcher
try setting the object as: jit.window @fsmenubar 0
the default value for fsmenubar is 1. Hope this helps
The key object makes it so you can press escape to toggle fullscreen

As Thinksamuel said, if you first put the patcher is in fullscreen using the "thispatcher" object, when you tell jit.window to be in fullscreen it truly will be. But it doesn’t have to be the only thing in the patcher and the patcher doesnt have to be in presentation mode, and pressing escape won’t put anything in fullscreen ever, unless you put "key" and "select 32" in your patcher.
I think you mean (select 27), (select 32) would toggle fullscreen with the spacebar.
(key) -> (select 27) -> [x] -> (fullscreen $1) -> jit.window is a very common design pattern in Max
Many thanks to Nate. The patch he proposed works perfectly.
My jit.window now fills the full screen.
