Hide all panels
Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
(like F in Photoshop)
Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!
I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.
It has been under review since 2016.. MrTalin, I can safely say this is taking too long :P
Need this feature!
For those of you waiting for the feature to come through, let me offer a bit of help. You can click on the blue icon in the bottom-righthand corner of the screen to close the left panel. This still leaves the right panel open, but at least it makes 1/2 of the unusable screen...usable!

it not normal working on 2/4 of screen omg omg omg - I cannot even preview it to normal see what is inside to create pricing not even work with that to coding
and it's so simple thing in programming - add one property to panel and into menu switcher omg
what you don't have programmers?
I can help you with that
or send source code to github and create community edition
I also have to express that not having the ability to hide the interface is incredibly frustrating. Working primarily on a laptop to design a website, the UI always covers a large portion of the design. A similar behavior to Photoshop's Tab key is really sorely missing.
The current Alt + Enter shortcut to preview would be one work around, if it didn't require selecting a specific artboard. It always defaults to previewing the first artboard rather than the one I'm looking at, which makes this whole thing even more frustrating.
It's been 3 years since this request came in. Is there any hope we'll EVER see such a thing implemented?

I don't understand why it's not there yet!!!
Absolutely need this feature!
Also want to be able to have both Assets and Layers visible at the same time. (Kind of a no-brainer...)

Sketch has "Show/Hide Inspector" & "Show/Hide Layers List" – I cannot figure out how to hide the panel on the right in XD! I primarily work on my laptop and it takes up way too much space when open all the time. Please help! How do you hide that panel??
Really need this feature.
I'm currently working on a Laptop (daily) then presenting on a TV screen to a room of people my working files (Pre Prototype stage) I'll constantly be jumping between artboards.
Currently in Presentation mode, you can left/right arrow click to the next artboard. Would be very handy for up/down arrow keys to do the same.
Another update got released today, and this is for "Improved designer-developer collaboration with unified links" ... now you got a panel on the right where you can hide the assets and comments section. Why can't that the applied to XD itself?
This is a daily struggle. PLEASE apply same feature as Photoshop by pressing F key.
Is there a reason why this wasn't implemented on day 1 and why it's still not implemented today? I mean come on XD is for UI and UX and yet USERS or USABILITY was not in mind!?

Any updates on this? Being able to view the full canvas when designing is an absolute must—couldn't believe I had to look it up to find out this feature doesn't exist. It's just like painting a picture whilst having all the brushes and paints hanging on top of your painting without being able to gauge at the whole thing whilst creating.

This would be soooo helpful.

XD Team: Please! This issue disrupts design workflow and productivity!
Not being able to see full canvas impairs the designers ability to quickly develop a mental model making it more difficult for maximum output.
Cannot stress this enough!
Sammy Guergachi commented
This would be great for people with portrait monitors to view things especially when the right panel isn't needed

I want the ability to hide all the sidebars when I am working on an artboard. Just as you can side the Layers and Assets sidebars, I want to be able to hide the Properties (right hand) sidebar too.

One more voise for this. Many times you really do not need this and is only frustrating. Have you ever have to splited XD files with this feature open?
Mike Britton commented
I support this feature more than any other. All design tools need stage-only view; this has been an oversight from the beginning.
