How can I remove the border from the form designer so I can create GUI's full screen?

( My Questions keep disappearing from my account, so I apologise if I have duplicate posts )  How can I remove the border from the form designer so I can create GUI's full screen as described below? Most of our bespoke applications are full screen and stay full screen.When designing these screens we use the same target monitor as we will supply to our customer.The designer is set to not embedded and the designer fills the screen exactly as it would look to our customer. I have been able to do the above using Delphi 7, XE1 and XE2. Recently we have moved to Tokyo 10.2.I can run the designer not embedded.I cannot make the designer full screen as the form designer has a border of its own. I have tried various hacks such as AutoHotKeys to remove the border, but nothing, so far, has given me the same editing experience as XE2. How can I remove the border from the designer so I can create GUI's full screen as described above?

    Hi Richard,

    I have a similar problem and manage by fixing the screen size at run time and adding scroll bars at design time to allow me to move around a t design time to which ever part of the screen I am interested in. A pain, but not too bad when you get used to it !

    Richard,

    another idea: Use a bigger display/higher resolution for design purposes...
