I installed the plugin, activated it and nothing happened. Still all in fullscreen mode. I guess it needs a fix. Edit: It works totally fine. Found some bugs + incompatibility issues with custom code - that´s why it conflicted before and didn´t work.

I and all my clients were lost with this new full editing experience. They didn't know, where to click to get back to the dashboard, thanks to this plugin, they can manage their website again in a logical way. Ciao!

While it's insane that this would need a plugin, thank you for making one!
