I'd like to be able to see a true to form depiction of my 1920x1080 design in preview mode. When I click on the play button, Adobe resizes and puts a different aspect ratio on my design, including adding two vertical black bars - one on each side of the design. (see screenshot)
The devs I work with like to develop in 1920 and I enjoy designing in 1920. However, we keep running into problems due to the fact that I have been thinking when I click preview, I'm looking at my design in its correct proportions. We just discovered this shortcoming in XD. I notice that the bars appear only if the design is larger than 1820px wide. Anything under that shows true to form. I'd love to see the preview mode work correctly when the design is at 1920. This would save me and my team a ton of headaches, speed up our design/dev process, and make all the follow up client resolution meetings and rework disappear. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!
