Command to auto-show/hide all palettes #563
Similar to the Adobe apps (which use the Tab key), press a key and all palettes, tool bar, and status bar disappear, leaving you with a large "clean" view of your tile map grid. Press again and the palettes re-appear. Not sure whether the "clean" map view should re-position itself to center itself up in the new space (but I suggest yes).

@erem2k I guess the action should be visible in the menu somewhere, it could go together with View -> Full Screen (F11).
The main implementation work is probably to remember which docks were visible and to restore this state when the shortcut is used again. It could be done either manually or using
When in doubt about the behavior I tend to also look at other applications that already have similar functionality. They have usually already struggled with the same questions.
Yup, will stuff it there. What hotkey is it supposed to use, Tab like suggested?
In Adobe apps, restoring docks is possible during "view" mode, and they remain after interface is turned back on again in addition to docks that were originally hidden. If dock had multiple tabs, was active and had tab open during "interface" mode and was restored during "view", the tab active in "view" mode remains, sort of expand and replace behavior. If app is closed while in "view", it opens back in "interface" mode - think I'll go with that idea
