Stay in Full Screen Mode

Clicking the sides of the page, when viewing a task in full screen mode, takes the page out of full screen mode. It’s ridiculously frustrating.

When viewing a task, you can hit TAB+X, or append /f to the URL, to view it in Full Screen mode. Once there, if you mouse click the grey area to the left or right of the displayed task, you get bumped out of full screen mode. I accidentally do this all the time, and it makes for an extremely frustrating user experience. Can this be changed?

I completely agree - so frustrating. If it’s one thing I don’t like about Asana, it’s this :bangbang: :wilted_flower:


i also agree – love Asana, but this UI aspect on the desktop is extremely frustrating, and happens many times a DAY for me.

@Alexis , is it possible to raise this to the Asana team, to consider changing this behavior for the desktop ?

There is an “x” button on the top-right of full-screen mode, and that should be sufficient to return back to the project.


This behavior is really annoying. I always accidentally click the grey area to exit full screen mode especially while typing the description and I have to click outside to save it. Can you guys please consider changing it?


Hi, I noticed that in the docs there is often a screenshot from Asana where the content is showed fit-to-page but in the desktop view, my lists are always centred with huge amounts of grey space around them. How can I utilize the full width of real-estate? It’s quite irritating when pulling a report and it only taking up a third of my screen width.


2020 here…just join asana, still having same issue.
this experience so irritating.
