Need TRUE Full Screen & a few requests

Hi, this truly is a fantastic app and is nearly everything we could hope for in a flashcard program for our son. We were originally using Powerpoint and Mental Case provides a much better interface to organize learning sets and information. With that said, one thing that we can't seem to get is true full screen. I've even gone in and tried editing the HTML and JS, but still can't get full screen. See the attached image.

Also, even with one of the Full Screen themes, the image content on an image slide is too small. If we could get the full screen format worked out, then that should allow for larger images, but it would be great to be able to adjust the size of the images. I see where this has been requested in other discussions and thought I would second that request.

And lastly, as another request; for the curriculum that we use with our son, it's important to have a title slide. However, if you insert a slide to use as the title slide, it would be subject to randomization when viewing shuffled. It would be great to have an option in the preferences that would use the Case title and generate a title slide without having a manual title slide included within the case. Make sense? I'd be happy to edit the JS some more to get it working right if you could provide guidance.

So, three things:
1. True Full screen, without black bars. See image.
2. Image resizer
3. Title slide implementation

I know you've done a tremendous amount of work and I thank you for a great program. Thanks.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Thanks for the feedback.
    We have a whole new version of MC for Mac coming in a couple of months, and slideshows have changed a lot.
    If you would be interested in seeing what we have done, let me know, and I can get you in the beta program. You can use the beta alongside your current version, because it has a separate copy of the data.
    Kind regards,

    Hey Drew,
    I'd love to be a beta tester. We have become heavy users of your program already, with either me or my wife spending a couple hours per night working on our son's program.

    I'll be happy to provide whatever help I can. It's a great app!
