Does anyone know how to hide the menu/control bar in SkySafari 5+ on Android (Galaxy Edge 7). This User Guide says "Android users can toggle the menu bar by tapping the hardware Menu button on their device" ... but what is the hardware Menu button ? I've tried every thing but no go ...

I just upgraded to 5+ (for US$6.50) and I'd really like to take screenshots without half the useful data obscured !

TIA

Can I ask - when you push that menu key what actually happens? I can't test this because later model Galaxy's use the lower left button for swapping between active apps, so there's no menu button anymore

But it would help to know what happens on earlier galaxies. If it hides the toolbar so the whole screen is available for stars / galaxies etc, then great as Sim Corporation only need to add minor functionality. Hopefully in their next minor release to fix this oversight.

Or keep pushing the time or scope buttons. It alteranates between that menu or none.
When there's no menu it just shows the zoom in/out buttons and the menu items .
