Yeah only way around this that I have figured out is to just play windowed. I get better FPS in full screen so I end up having to look up stuff on my iPhone. I hope they fix it.

You do know you can play FFXI in windowed mode, right? I did it from the day they added it to the day I quit.

Most people are aware, however I think most people are directly speaking about the fact that we can't play on TRUE FULLSCREEN (which is better) and be able to alt+tab to another window if we choose to. And it just doesn't make any sense why SE is being so stubborn about this!

really? i didnt know that. thanks for the info.... (sarcasm)

good for you by the way on playing ffxi your whole career in windowed mode..

Well not everyone wants to look at the bars around the screens edge and some peoples PC runs alot smoother in full screen. there is no need to not allow alt-tabing.

This is true they did add one. Although I think this person was speaking specifically that they wanted them to fix alt+tab in fullscreen mode. This is something I would also like to see done. Playing in windowed mode is okay but I'd rather them fix fullscreen or make the windowed mode adjust better to your screen.
