Add full fullscreen/splitscreen support for Mac OSX
OSX has a fullscreen/splitscreen mode, integrated into their Spaces (desktop view dedicated to one app only) support in almost any app.
Acrobat (!) already added this fullscreen support.
The classical design workflow would be greatly improved if InDesign (and most other CC apps) would support this native OSX feature.
Especially corrections, copying text, comparing artwork and final lay-out, switching apps, would go much faster, with less switching of views, apps, moving windows around etc…
On a MacBook, this would make all Adobe apps much more useful. I (and many others) do not want to pay for a second monitor, only to make switching between apps easier.

I think Adobe ran out of all excuses for not implementing this one in its apps (all apps). Full screen has been around since OS X Lion, and Adobe's apps have been on Macs since forever. What kind of "UI strategy" justifies this awkward behavior? We really need flexibility working with different screen sizes, and full screen option is great for small screens, I can't lug around a 27" display just to work in inDesign.
Any updates on this issue?
For me, it seems it does not work.
InDesign 2022 Version.
If so: A lot of creatives use apple systems, this seems extremely ridiculous.
It seems there is not enough negative user feedback to care about this issue.

Following up on this: using InDesign in its own space, especially when it is assigned to a specific space via the Dock, is very problematic. Sometimes the app is confused on where to activate windows, or the app doesn't appear to the foreground as expected.

Not supporting a major workflow feature of the platform that has been around for quite some time seems crazy. Most any other Mac app supports this properly.
This is also more appropriately reported as a bug but with fewer votes here:

Been asking for this for ages. Please make this a priority.
Chiming in, November 2019. This would be very helpful and convenient. It does not seem like there would be much development needed on Adobe's part.

This should have been the obvious choice. It doesn't make sense why in 2018, this is a *feature* request...

Seriously.. what's with Adobe's UX game?
