can i start the pm6 in full screen as default under mac?
« on: May 01, 2020, 01:38:44 AM »
Hi
I really love pm6 under mac , seems faster then windows

may i ask if there is a way to start it allways in full screen ?

or is there a way to use automator to start it always in full screen ?

just a second question , to avoid to write IPTC inside my image and have only a sidecar xmp sidecar is enough to uncheck these settings?
disable all the settings with the red arrow and enable the settings with the green arrow

edit I took the screenshot form the online guide/help , i have the last build v6 and i have not such option , i have less
thanks

No, there is no option to start in full screen mode.

I don't know.  You could try to use Automator and see if it works.

You can certainly uncheck the "Add embedded IPTC (XMP will always be written)" check box, and to prevent writing to your RAW files, uncheck the "Allow RAW files to be modified" check box.  The reason your screen shot differs from what you see on the macOS version is because your screen shot is from Photo Mechanic 5.  Things were streamlined/simplified in PM6.

HTH,
