How do you toggle the 'canvas only' mode in inkscape? There seems to be a fullscreen(F11) mode but that doesn't get rid of all the buttons and only keep the drawing area. I don't know if this is a linux specific bug(since I use linux only), but I wanted to keep only the drawing area and get rid of all the buttons and tool areas temporarily(kind of like when you hit Tab in krita.

Try Shift + F11, for toggling toolbars, OR use Ctrl + F11 for toggling toolbars & fullscreen at the same time.

All shortcuts: Inkscape keyboard and mouse reference.
