    Hi,

    I have installed  1.5.0_Alpha(020207) on a CentOS 4.4 server (port 80), jdk1.5.0_11. All looks good but I can't seem to find out how to enable full screen sharing. At the moment we get only a small'ish window in the centre that shows what is being shared.

    I saw 'F5' mentioned in one of the posts but that doesn't seem to work.

    I am sure this is very easy but everything is once you know how to do it :)

    Regards,

    Jack

      Hello Jack,
      Thank you for your interest in Dimdim.
      The current 1.5 build of Dimdim does not have the view shared screen in full screen feature.
      This feature has been requested by a lot of members of our user community and we shall include it in the next release as a popout. Clicking on a popout link will open a new window which will contain the shared application in fullscreen.
      The next release is in the final testing stages and will be released shortly.
      Regards,
      Uday

        Jack,
        We are running final regression tests on the build.
        If all goes well - the build should be in SF in the first week of April.
        I hope this is helpful.
        Regards,
        Uday

      I have loaded 1.6 (looks great as usual) but still can't seem to get full screen to the clients.

      How do you you share your desktop/files full screen?

      I have just re-read your comment on the pop-out. I tried this but didn't seem to give full screen.

        Jack,
        Thanks for the update.
        The steps to get full screen are as follows:-
        1)Start a meeting
        2) Presenter uploads a presentation and shares it
        3) Presenter clicks on "Popout". This will create a full screen window in the presenter side.
        4) Attendee sees slide 1
        5) Attendee clicks on "Popout" and gets a new full screen window.

        Can you please let me know what happens in your case when you click on the "Popout" link?
        Regards,
        Uday
