The WordPress "#wpadminbar", which many plugins use to provide information and notices about the current post, is no longer shown when using the 5.4 fullscreen editor (which is the default), and there does not seem to be any setting for turning it back on!

Here's a quick-fix that I had to implement:

 * Fix the WordPress v5.4 fullscreen editor.
 */ #wpadminbar {
} .block-editor__container {
        min-height: calc(100vh - 32px);
} .block-editor-editor-skeleton {

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

You can disable the fullscreen view by clicking again on "Fullscreen mode" in the view settings.

I'm not sure why that image was added - the "Top toolbar" for the editor is not the same as the WordPress "#wpadminbar" top toolbar. Enabling the editor "Top toolbar" does not re-enable the WordPress top toolbar.

The problem is not the fullscreen editor, it's that the fullscreen editor does not show the WordPress top toolbar, which is required by many plugins to show contextual information and notices.

That’s just the focus outline what you’re seeing there with regards to the top toolbar.

The admin bar is probably one of the distracting items when writing a post, that’s likely why it was decided to hide it in the full screen/non-distracting mode.

Since there is no usable notification system at the moment (ie. the visual editor notices do not allow HTML to link solutions etc.) then the only viable location for notices and current post information is the top toolbar.
