An opened attached picture can be closed by pressing ESC.
But when I'm in presentation mode this closes not just the picture but also the presentation mode.

Version 2.8.2

    Idea: Could you use a shortcut like "F11" to start/quit the presentation mode?

    Hello Titus

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    As you may know, Goalscape Desktop is cross-platform and runs on both Windows and MAC OS X machines. We need to maintain as much consistency as possible in the controls and shortcuts used in different OS; and F11 is already used to access the Desktop in OS X.

    We are intending to maintain the use of the Escape key to exit Full Screen (and not close the image), and clicking the 'X' on the image popup to close it (and not exit Full Screen). We may add a 'close image' shortcut later, preferably the same control for any OS (and for Goalscape Online in any browser).

    Enjoy the journey!
