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!
The previous version of XD worked fairly well on this front, but this feature has been lost since the new, 'responsive' artboards were added.
When designing a website, it's crucial that we can view the published design at 100%, without any scaling. At the moment, when you publish and view in a browser, the prototype is scaled down and not being displayed at the correct size.
We need an option to 'publish at 100%' or something similar. I can't send a published prototype to a client when its not accurately representing what the website will look like.
I also need that I can publish the prototype in actual size.
This is what I need to show my prototypes to clients using Adobe XD.
Are the prototypes are working ok to 100% size now? I see them reduced. please let me know, I cannot find info online.

Please add the ability to present prototypes in 100% size - as designed on the artboards. Otherwise it does not make sense to spend hours adjusting font sizes, icons, images and so on, when you can't be sure the user sees it in the intended size.
No real websites scales down the content to fit the browser like XD does (not talking responsive layout here), so what is the idea behind it?
Here is my problem with actual size. I did click the option of "open in full screen", but it still doesn't work.
The full screen& actual size are used to available, anyone can help me try to figure out?
Edit: I just realized that we can set the view to 100% when creating and in the design specs. I'm editing this request to include the view options on the preview mode.
I recently fully designed a system on XD, featuring 73 art boards. Once I finished, my team and I began developing it with the help of XD's design specs. Unfortunately, due to the fact that none of the previews presented the project in actual size, I did not realize that everything I designed was too big.
I did not have the time to redesign the entire project, so there was a lot of guesswork involved, and the project lost a lot of its consistency.
When previewing these artboards, we need to be able to view them in actual size in order to avoid this issue.

this might be partially related, but I would also like to have prototypes linked through mobile to scale to actual device width.
This could go in tandem with responsive scaling feature currently in the works, where app knows how to resize. because the black margins around the design prototype can be immersion breaking for clients.

Guys, your software is not beta anymore and it's full of sjowstoppers. Please add the basic stuff.

The link to share prototypes must have an atribute to center the image on the user's browser screen. For example: xd.adobe.com/view/--/?fullscreen/?center
The problem is that when you share an prototype that have for example 1360px width with a 960px container inside it, and send to a person that have an screen resolution lower than 1360px, the image will align on the left with horizontal scroll for the right, and the user have to scroll until the container is aligned on the center of his screen.

Why is this in the backlog ??? The design specs view has it, so why not the prototype view ??
This is unbelievable! We had a stakeholder meeting and clients kept complaining why it doesn't show in the actual size. This feature should be in development, rather than in the backlog.
The Previewresolution is not alinge with the workresolution.
When i work with 100% and compare the previouse, is a tick smaller.
App is out of beta and this feature is still not here… C'mon guys! Do I really have to work with Symu or InVision?
When using the Desktop Preview for a 1920 x 1080 web prototype, it's actually showing it at ~93% the full size (see attached images with the black bars on the side).
Can we have a full screen mode that shows it at the accurate size?

Another incredibly simple feature that doesn't work... i've really given XD a serious try but the software is so limited. I'm actually looking forward to InVision Studio.
André Ferraz commented
Just to emphasize: Yeah, we really need this feature. Obviously for mobile we would need this to be resized as it already is, but for web (desktop/notebook) prototypes it needs to be 100% size, doesn't make sense be another way. As you can see this is already an decisive feature for many professionals to switch from InVision to XD. Maybe we can choose the if it will be show as 100% or fit.
I really believe in this software and wait excited for this feature.
not buying this until this basic and straight forward update is made

When will this be fixed? Very frustrating and not user-friendly when sending web version prototypes to clients. Please fix ASAP!
Is there any movement on this issue? This is over a year old and it seems to be a pretty basic fix to the container the prototype is displayed in rather than application code.
