I wanted to have a second window (with a 3D View) totally clean for projection.

Anyone have any idea how to get rid of the little (+) buttons on the side, the ones that show up when you press T or N key to hide the side toolbars?

Editing the code and compiling Blender again, I guess. Could some one help me or point me the way.

  1. Duplicate the area into a new window.
    View ‣ Duplicate Area into new Window
    Duplicate a window with ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltW
    Info area ‣ Window ‣ Duplicate Window
  2. Then, Toggle Area Fullscreen ⎇ AltF10. View ‣ Toggle Fullscreen Area
  3. Eliminiate additional 3D View icons in the User Preferences ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltU under InterfaceDisplay (on the left)


Although the manual says the same as in 2.79. The Toggle Fullscreen Area is somewhere else in 2.8 (2018-10-12).

3D View Menu: View ‣ Area ‣ Toggle Fullscreen Area. ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltSpace

  • $\begingroup$ The hotkey tooltip says something about ActionZone, which I don't understand though. $\endgroup$ – Leander Oct 14 '18 at 8:28
  • $\begingroup$ in 2.8 still not totally clean, on the bottom left, the Last Operator thing is still there. $\endgroup$ – João Oliveira Oct 15 '18 at 9:57
  • $\begingroup$ @Joao Selection doesn't toggle the Last Operator thing. A simple A keyboard press will remove it. $\endgroup$ – Leander Oct 15 '18 at 10:03
