Nice hint, pretty quick.  However, from my perspective who uses LaTeX
beamer frequently it would be great if the promise of the manual

       p      Toggle presentation mode.

would do what I expect it to do.  It seems it just adds some delayed
shading / smoothing effect.  I would love to have it *real* fullscreen

       f      Toggles fullscreen mode.

... but the rendered PDF remains in a small section in the middle of the
window.  Not sure whether this is a bug or a feature - but for
presentations ist seems I need to stick to evince.

Kind regards
