Dynamic scrolling viewport height based on screen size
Currently, for scrolling artboards there is a fixed-position dotted line that defines the height of the viewport in the interactive preview.
For desktop web sized artboards, I'd like the position of the dotted line to automatically adjust dynamically so the prototype fills the full height of the user's screen. For example, on a laptop screen the scrollable viewport might be 960px tall and when the same prototype is viewed on a desktop monitor the viewport might be 1200px tall.
Can anyone from Adobe give an approximate timescale for this? It seems such a fundamental omission?

YES! This would really add to the experience the XD already gives to our clients, it would definitely look more like a finished website rather than missing something on the bottom of the screen.
I already love working with XD but this would help loads with presenting to our clients.
This is my main gripe with XD. I design web solutions and that means presenting design to clients remotely. Invision does this a lot better. But I love working in XD!

Yes, please. This is essential for desktop design preview. Just copy Invision (copy also background customizing while you're there).

When a prototype is shared with clients, they are not able to appreciate the view port height setting in XD and who can blame them? This setting does not make sense. For standard, desktop and scroll-able web pages, we have set the width of the art board and that's all we need to care about.A automatic scroll bar is also a missing option, since not everyone has a touch screen or a mouse wheel.
Any update on this? Hard to believe it has such a low vote count. Surely it’s an obvious thing to be able to do? Viewing the page design through a smaller viewport aperture on a larger screen just looks plain odd and just has the client asking why does the page not go to the bottom of my browser screen?
Yes, it's very much needed thing for core prototype software. Adobe needs to think about this and please find the appropriate solution as soon as possible. Also, revert on this so we get an idea about your attention.

I have this exact requirement as part of my project. It would be a great improvement to XD.
Totally agree this should be added. Whenever my clients view a desktop mockup on their mobile device they just have a tiny viewport to see through.
Let them see the full height!
This is by far, the most important BASIC thing to be fixed. I actually don't even understand why this was first built like this. Bummer. Team, get this done yesterday, super important.
I think I will stick to InVision for this kind of thing.

Agreed! This would be awesome!

This is absolutely needed. Please implement this as soon as possible.

YES, please. It is absolutely necessary to be able to view these at full screen in prototype preview mode.
Oh this would be great. When I'm presenting, I just want it to look best on the display, and I might not know what that would be before I begin the presentation. This would make me not have to worry about it. Basically, it would run the prototype at full width and then it would automatically apply the viewport height as needed to fill the height of the screen.
