View and share design prototypes at actual size
The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.
You can now choose the zoom setting in the shared prototype. By setting it to 100%, you’ll be able to see the screen at the designed zoom level, regardless of the viewport. If you have additional feature requests, please feel free to file them as new tickets!
Just has a client complain about this very issue today. Especially since we had Invision and Marvel in our previous workflows. We've totally transitioned to XD, but this is extremely disappointing.
Umm, I've just trying XD to see if I wanna switch software....was happy until I tried publishing and can't quite believe this is an issue! Really?!...I gotta export my design into Invision to show anyone at actual size??
This still isn't fixed, CMON ADOBE!
Just got back from meeting where i was explaining client that preview is not real size of his web!
Come on Adobe...

Yes, we've stopped showing clients links to XD now, and simply export them as jpgs, and preview them at 100% in the browser... bit annoying, but stops any confusion when it comes to them signing off on font sizing and layout...
This is must have!
Seriously Adobe? Users have been reporting this problem for 4 years. This is must have! Without this XD is useless for web design. Nothing has happened in this case since 2016. When will you fix it? This is so annoying.
@joan_lafferty or any other admin, is it possible to get a status on this? The feature was under review in 2016, got backlogged, and has been under review again for nearly a year... Any ETA?

I’m having the same issue and I’ve tried everything to overcome this.
This issue needs to be resolved ASAP as it’s becoming an ever-increasing issue when showing my design to clients.
I’m constantly having the same argument about scaling and being responsive.

We have just come to the end of a client project where the inability to preview at 100% on smaller devices has repeatedly caused fundamental issues and has ultimately jeopardised our working relationship with the client.
We are looking at ways of working around this issue but are seriously considering changing our workflow to include software which allows our clients to preview accurately.
This is still a massive issue in 2020, can you please stop ignoring the community and find a solution.

We need this ASAP

Please fix it guys, it's outrageous. My clients are always asking me why everything looks so tiny in the export. And I have to resize everything from 1920px wide to their 1366px wide monitors, so they can see everything at the original size.
Please do something about it, we all obviously love XD, despite its imperfections, but this is really serious, we design for the web as well, not only for mobile.
Please fix it, this is so annoying for clients.
Yea this is a big problem when showing designs. This issue is not fixed by simply making the viewport the same height as your browser window as, invariably, other stakeholders have different browser heights/sizes/resolutions. The only way around this is to export the design as a png and place it into an html page (which I used to do and worked). However, this extra step was a pain. So surprised Adobe are not aware of this.

That's a core feature that has serious impact on how our clients could evaluate a design and needs to be implemented soon.
And I only find out about this before delivering work to client! That's embarrassing!

I fully agree. We're hesitating between Adobe XD and another tool. And because of that (and a few simple issues like this one..)..

Just do it, it is shameful to present my work and it is not compatible with reality
I've set the scrolling to vertical, but setting the viewport to a certain height doesn't fix the issue of being able to see the preview at the designed size. The image is still simply scaled to fit the browser width. So if my client's using a laptop it shrinks text and images, on a desktop it scales up. It still would be a vital feature to ensure the client's seeing the text and image sizes at the intended size. Am I missing something?
Yes, as last person mentioned, selecting 'vertical' for scrolling in the panel on the right sorts it out. Phew
