Here it is:

Nice hint!

NIB editing breaks code-signing I guess and requires you to repeat the process upon updating the application.

If NIBs are editable you can select the windows you want to support full screen in Interface Builder and modify in attributes inspector the option fullscreen from 'unsupported' to 'primary window', http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13104732/how-insert-full-screen-button-and-bottom-bar-in-interface-builder-mac-os-x-and-b

If NIBs are not editable you can follow the instructions from the link you posted. I would nonetheless attempt to decompile the NIBs with Nib-Decompiler (https://github.com/akahan/Nib-Decompiler) or NibUnlocker (http://www.charlessoft.com/NibUnlocker.zip) just to see how they are constructed in order to better edit the XML file.
