    I use a 13" macbook pro so screen space is at a premium. It would be great to be able to use Office 2011 in full screen on a separate space like other apps do. The current fullscreen does not give me access to the ribbon, only select writing tools and is only in the current space. Any way to change this.

    Not possible. You need to wait for Microsoft to fix it.

    Haven't tried it, but yes it probably works if it says it will. Me personally I try to stay away from SIMBL stuff that goes too deep in the system for my taste.

    I just hide stuff I don't need, see attached file for my Word 2011. Toolbar and horizontal scroll bar disabled. Have the dock to automatically hide and you get quite a bit of screen space.

    Could not get simbl to work anyway. Hiding toolbars is what I did for now. Any way to hide the dock for only msword?
