MenuAndDockless is a SIMBL plugin for OS X 10.7 Lion (and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion) enabling you to choose for every native Cocoa application wether it should show the Menu bar and the Dock or not. In addition you can save the default window size and position, this will also work for multiple display setups, automatically adjust window sizes or center and arrange windows and toggle a fullscreen mode individually for each application by customizable shortcuts or menu items.

On smaller screens (on an 11" MacBook Air for example) this often makes much sense because you gain a
What's New
Version 2.0.1:
  • replaced conflicting custom views
  • removed annoying logs
  • changed description in the hopes more people will be able to read the word: NATIVE!
  • MenuAndDockless 2.0 is completely rewritten to better work in sandboxed environments and to take advantage of OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion features. I’ve improved the saving and restoring of default window frames and you can now apply own shortcuts (hotkeys) for all actions/menu items.

Unlike its marketing this product is not trouble free. When run with X-Plane Flight Sim the product caused the X-Plane menu to be hidden by the Mac menu bar when in full screen resolution. Given that X-Plane from my knowledge is based on X-11 code, this product may produce issues with other X-11 products, many of which are open source. I am absolutely certain that this product is the culprit because as soon as I removed it and relaunched X-Plane the problem disappeared. Free is not so free when you have to spend most of a day troubleshooting an issue.

MenuANDDockless resides in your root library folder:Applications Support Folder:SIMBL folder, not in your user library folder or system library folder. When you find it, just toss it in the trash to get rid of it.

The reason I am so annoyed by this is that the developer claims it is trouble free. It is not.

What is unclear about it is SOLELY for NATIVE COCOA Apps ONLY???

I'd rather not say what I'm often annoyed by :-)

I love it. I wish Apple would implement this as a standard feature, the menu bar looks old and tired, and I mostly use keyboard shortcuts anyway.

I love this Application! only wish there was systemwide setting to open all applications in full screen. I have set up MenuAndDockless systemwide to hide Menubar and Dock, when i open application Menubar Hides but leaves toolbar of application at same spot so the space I see on top of Toolbar where Menubar was looks little annoying.
I wish Developers fix this Issue By the way this Application Rocks!

There is nothing I can do about that. But you can enable to start individual Apps with saved window size/position (btw. for different display setups) and they will resize after the Menu bar is hidden - so no space left :-)

I really would like to use this product but unfortunately the issue with hiding X-Plane menus and not being settable in X11 precludes this possibility in the latest release as of Aug 10,2011. What is needed is an exclusion list so the user can list programs in which the product is disabled,

Absolutely fantastic application. Seems stable too. If the developer added the option to change the default keyboard shortcuts then five stars.

Unfortunately this product hides X-Plane menus, even though you don't tell it to.

Amazing. Easy. Does what it's supposed to… well, almost. When using MAD with Finder, the original dock settings (in my case always show dock) are not restored. I had to manually activate (or rather deactivate) it in the Dock PrefPane.

Another bug: When using MAD with Safari, everything works fine until I control-click on a link to open a URL in a background tab. All of a sudden the menu and the dock appear again, but the Safari window is only partially adjusted to the newly reduced space, i.e. to the menu, but not to the dock.

Hm - can't reproduce one of that 'bugs'
Is it possible that you've some other tools installed with same features that could cause this?

It could be related to "Afloat": http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/22237/afloat

Additional SIMBL plugins: GreaseKit, Safari Cookies, Saft, Afloat (see ablove)
Additional Finder plugins: TotalFinder, FinderPop, ShortcutObserver, DockView, Switché etc.

Thank You!

The Full Screen transition could be faster and hopefully you'll keep on improving the wonderful utility:)

On smaller screens (on an 11" MacBook Air for example) this often makes much sense because you gain a lot of more free 'space' and it reduces possible distractions and you don't have to manually position windows all over again - one keystroke or click and the window will be adjusted and positioned to the frame you always want it to have…

And because under the Finder is now also written in Cocoa MenuAndDockless even works for the Finder (just needs to be restarted once).

MenuAndDockless is free and works on every Mac running Lion and above in 64 bit mode and is not rally a hack like other tools - it's just an addition and will not cause any trouble…
