Background color on fullscreen prototype should be the same color as artboard color

When you view the prototype in the background color is white on the page that surrounds the layout, but if you click the fullscreen icon top right the same backgound becomes black, this also removes the text navigation links under the layout.

Why is this? And why doesn't the background fill the screen dynamically with the background of my web layout? It looks very strange when my 1024x768px gets a bordered frame around it instead of just getting a full background that occupies the screen, just like I would when making the same layout in Dreamweaver. When I preview layouts in the latter app it doesn't introduce a framed border around it.

Guess this was two questions in one but it relates do each other I think.

    OMG, please! Getting into XD, decide to preview on my phone, and yeah... the scroll area when it bounces is BLACK. Demo killer. Was going to present today's work to new SVP boss tomorrow, but this shaves off the slickness effect I was aiming for :-(

    Yeah, it makes complete sense that it's the same as the artboard background color - otherwise what's the point of setting it, right?

    Right now it's treated as if I've added a colored rectangle as a "background"

    I have many artboards across different projects using a custom color as the background of the artboard.

    When I preview on an iPad and scroll down until the "bounce" effect shows, it reveals a black background. This is a complete immersion killer when testing with clients.

    totally - fullscreen really needs to be FULL ... the border looks bad and is a real problem to explain to clients, etc

    I agree with this. Now I have to add a black rectangle in the background and lock it to get the effect of the background color on scroll.
