PyCharm 3.4.0 Web Help

PyCharm provides two special view modes:

  • Full Screen mode allows you to use the entire screen for coding. This removes all menus from view, as well as the operation system controls. However, you can use context menus and keyboard shortcuts. The main menu is also available when you hover the mouse pointer over the top of the screen.
  • Presentation mode - this mode is similar to the Full Screen mode, but it is designed for making presentations that involve coding with PyCharm. In this mode, PyCharm increases the font size and hides everything except the editor. If necessary, tool windows can be also displayed in this view using the corresponding items in the View | Tool Windows menu.
To enter presentation mode
  • On the main menu, choose View | Enter Presentation Mode.
To exit presentation mode
  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the upper-most part of the screen, to show the main menu.
  2. On the main menu, choose View | Exit Presentation Mode.
