Show the "Focus Bar" while in fullscreen and on every desktop#103

I only work with fullscreen window on Mac, swipe right or left to go through all on my “Desktop”.

I love the idea of Slash, but the Focus Bar only appear at the bottom of the screen, when I am not in Fullscreen mode.

I wish it could appear on every single desktop

@Loïc Recoquiller It is on every desktop already, but I’m not sure if it can be shown while in fullscreen mode. I think that kinda defeats the purpose of full screen :/ We’ll investigate and report back here.

@Jordan Lejuwaan Slidepad is a macOS app that shows an iPad-like screen on top of full screen apps!

@Pieter I’m guessing that’s a Native app, which offers you a lot more options than Electron app :/ We’ll look into it though!

I’m not familiar with Elektron but I also came across this discussion (with examples of an Elektron app that apparently uses a workaround) on https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/10078.

Anyways, I know this is probably a tough issue, but I really enjoy working fullscreen and this little timer is just the right size. In full screen mode I also don’t have the problem that other app’s functionalities/windows block it or are blocked by it, because I simply swipe them to multitask.

@Pieter Thanks so much for finding that! I implemented that hack, and it seems to work. Can you give it a go in the beta version of our app? https://github.com/jetlej/slash-beta-releases/releases

Works like a charm! Glad I could be of any assistance! And this level of commitment is truly incredible!

@Jordan Lejuwaan A bit too soon: the app does crash when you hit the sides of your screen.

@Pieter Can you clarify what you mean? Or perhaps record your screen with Loom?

Ouch, that’s annoying. Putting this back into our dev list!

The problem seems to be resolved in the latest beta version! Cheers :-)

@Pieter Hmm we didn’t find a fix for this directly. Maybe it was indirectly fixed by something else! I’ll close this for now. Let me know if you run into it again
