Where is the full screen mode on Camtasia 9?

Camtasia 8 used to have a button for fullscreen view. It was great to test the video and see if everything works well, rather than having a small window while you edit or the need to render it to truly see it. What is going on?

That you have to detach is insane. If you hit the full screen button the controls disappear to play it and "enter" doesnt work. So you have to detach hit play the full screen  .. controls disappear so no pause or timeline to go back and look at a section or scroll.  Just WOW!

Yup, this is a lame way to go full screen and many more mouse clicks to get it to work. Why screw up something that worked well in the past?

you can alt-tab to cycle between the full-screen canvas and the timeline view [sans canvas]

you can start/pause play in full screen mode using the space bar, other timeline navigation shortcuts still work in full screen mode

I really don't like that I cannot double click or right click to make it full screen. This is an important feature used often. We should not have to scroll a menu to find it. It's actually wasting time while I'm checking the video. Please fix.

I'm brand new to this, and the two times I've viewed full screen I've had trouble getting back to regular view. It's blacked out in the viewer. I figured out that there are two views still going when I click on window, but have had trouble staying toggled to the editing screen.
