I have a project with a lot of art boards. They have the size of 1280x1024. When I preview these after the latest update (0.5.4.51) I only see half of the window. I would like to have the ability to change the size of the preview window.
Hi there, c.alerius-
Were you able to see this before and are now unable to see the full screen? What is your screen's resolution? Are you trying to use full screen? Can you try resizing the Preview window? Also, we'd love to get a screenshot of what you're seeing to make sure we're seeing everything.
Yes, before I updated the software I did'nt have this problem.
Well, My screen has 5k resolution. And I have tried in both full screen and not.
I have been in contact with your support team and they said that I cannot change this, unless I make a new project. But that would be too much work for this project, I will do a workaround, but I would love to have the possibility to change this in the future.
In the first screen shot you see the preview window, and in the second you see how the mockup is supposed to look.
I'm looking into this issue for you. 1 question: are you using El Capitan?
Yes I'm using El Capitan
I wasn't able to reproduce the issue on my end. Is it possible that you can share the XD file with me?
Ok, I have sent the file to you.
I've got an answer for you.
The preview window represents the artboard size. In your case the content is clipped by the artboard, so the preview window will clip the content too. (Resizing the preview window doesn't modify the dimensions of the artboard, so that's the reason why you can't make the content visible by resizing the preview window.)
With the following steps you can easily modify all your artboard to match the dimensions of your content:
Thanks but thats not correct. When I resize the artboard i get a dotted line at the spot where the preview stops. I can resize the artboard but it doesn't effect the preview.
I have the same issue,
You can select all Your artboards and then change its mode (landscape/portrait), change it and then change it back again, this had helped me.
I'm running into this issue as well, and would love a solution to this.
Just to clarify the current behavior...
In most cases, if you resize an existing artboard to be taller, it automatically turns into a scrolling artboard. The original height will be the viewport size seen in the preview, and the new height will be the total height of the content that you can scroll around within that viewport.
So for example, in the original screenshot above you may have started with the "Web 1280" artboard size and then resized it taller -- it looks like it's 1280x1024 in the screenshot? Whenever you select anything inside the artboard, you'll see a blue dotted line indicating the viewport height (and in the Preview window or web sharing view, you can use the mousewheel or trackpad to scroll vertically).
Automatically making a scrolling artboard is handy, but unfortunately it's not always what you want. So, in our next update we'll give you options to turn scrolling on or off on any artboard.
In the meantime, if you want a taller artboard to just be tall -- never scroll -- then you can use this workaround:
Artboards that were drawn by dragging with the Artboard tool will never have scrolling auto turned on. After step 3, you can use Cmd-D to duplicate the blank artboard you created if you have multiple old artboards to fix.
I know that workaround is a bit clunky -- but luckily it's temporary. In our next release, you'll be able to select (or multi-select!) artboards and just turn off scrolling directly.
Hope that helps explain things!
The prototype mode only supports the sizes predefined by the XD app.
If you decide to design at 1080 x 1920 for an Android app for example, the prototype will clip the preview.
I don't think this was tested. But its pretty obvious to me. Shame on Adobe for releasing this feature without doing basic testing.
Was the control to turn off scrolling ever implemented? I am working with the latest release and cannot find it.
Yes, you can turn it off in the property inspector when you select the artboard. Turn the "scrolling" selection from Vertical to None to turn the scrolling off.
Hope that helps,
I had the same problem, and all you have to do is open the same link in Chrome. This worked for me. My preview was also cut half way in Edge.
BINGO- this is the solution- thanks so much!
Sadly this problem still exists in the current version of XD and you have to create a new custom artboard, select everything you created in the former artboard then cut & paste it on to the new custom artboard to get an "accurate" preview. Acurate meaning that you get the full view of the art board, not accurate as in viewing a page designed for desktop will preview in 1920 x 1080
It's mind boggling why you always get a bugged preview when working off of a template artboard (template referring to one of the blank pre-sized artboards that can be selected when creating a new artboard)
