Typing done, and the magnificent F11 key

Okay — the outline is typed in in by-character form. Now I need to start the cut-and-paste, drag-and-drop process of making it all fit into a single storyline. Don’t know why I couldn’t get through this by spreading the cards out on the floor. That usually works; it’s a visual process that almost always makes sense for me. This time I just couldn’t get things to jell. So I’ll go at it from another angle.

And, oh, Opera, the Wonder Browser … when you toggle the F11 key, it moves you between full-screen mode and browser-frame mode. So if you’re on a site where you’re going to be for a while, you can eliminate the browser entirely and just work on the site — for me, it’s great for the community. All the screen real estate is suddenly wide-open, everything fits, and it’s pretty. And if I need the browser again, F11 snaps it back into place.

God, I love this program.

    Opera is cool. But, yeah, IE and Mozilla also support this feature. It’s weird because I get alienated by all that space and no cool buttons to push. LOL The advantage would be when you are trying to have an immsersive experience.

    So does mozilla using F11 and you can disable popups.

    Actually, IE does this as well. I always forget to use it though. It is pretty nice to have so much screen space to move around in. Alas, IE does NOT close those pesky pop-ups. Perhaps Opera is the way to go.
