Problem not often encountered; delay fix

I am encountering this problem as well (on OSX). The scrollbars disappear when I go to full screen mode. They do not appear when I return to regular screen size. And clicking on the navigation pane does not restore the scrollbars, either.

This problem appears now to be worse (running kepler-trunk). Going to fullscreen mode and then hitting escape now causes a NullPointerException:

Try to figure this out and remove full screen mode if we can't get it fixed before 2.0

I've disabled full screen mode since it crashes returning from full screen. (See my comments why this occurs in KeplerGraphFrame). If this can't be fixed, then the button should be removed.

#8 Updated by Christopher Brooks about 10 years ago

There was a problem with scrollbars disappearing after fullscreen, but
View->Full Screen has been removed, so this bug is moot.
