Quartz Builder Preferences

steve holmes's picture

Okay I have been having problems getting Quartz Builder to make applications that go full screen, quartz builder simply refuses. I have deleted and re-downloaded and install quartz builder but no luck. So is there a preference file I need to trash, or does anyone have any suggestions? Cheers Steve

Please ignore this one I have got this working, it just need the right balance on Quartz Builder and Quartz Builder template. The only issue I have is the app seems to crash going between fullscreen, back to windowed.

Cheers Steve

Is there something in the composition's construct that breaks the fullscreen setting?

I don't think you can switch a QB app between full screen and widowed like QuickTime Player 7 does. I tried but gave up on it. Also SL or not makes a difference v.

This did work in SL in some scenario because I know I've successfully had apps that go back and forth in window size, though I don't know if it's broke along the way.

How is it that fullscreen is getting triggered? Via Parameter window? Via a keyclick?

Also, try different window levels - it may be that the small to fullscreen might not work with certain window levels. Also also... you can always make an app fullscreen and "imitate" a small window area with a setting, if you want to "roll your own" window look (I actually love doing that...).

I have now got this working but it took along time, I had to get the right quartz builder template, and use a fresh template every time I make a composition. Thanks for the help, really pleased I got this working. Cheers Steve
