Hi there, c.alerius-
Were you able to see this before and are now unable to see the full screen? What is your screen's resolution? Are you trying to use full screen? Can you try resizing the Preview window? Also, we'd love to get a screenshot of what you're seeing to make sure we're seeing everything.
Yes, before I updated the software I did'nt have this problem.
Well, My screen has 5k resolution. And I have tried in both full screen and not.
I have been in contact with your support team and they said that I cannot change this, unless I make a new project. But that would be too much work for this project, I will do a workaround, but I would love to have the possibility to change this in the future.
I'm looking into this issue for you. 1 question: are you using El Capitan?
Yes I'm using El Capitan
I wasn't able to reproduce the issue on my end. Is it possible that you can share the XD file with me?
Ok, I have sent the file to you.

I've got an answer for you.
The preview window represents the artboard size. In your case the content is clipped by the artboard, so the preview window will clip the content too. (Resizing the preview window doesn't modify the dimensions of the artboard, so that's the reason why you can't make the content visible by resizing the preview window.)
With the following steps you can easily modify all your artboard to match the dimensions of your content:
- Zoom out and marquee select all your artboards. (all artboards will be selected)
- Set the Height (H) value on the property inspector to the desired height. (all artboards will extend down)
- Select all content with cmd+a.
- Move the content down until it starts at the top of your artboards.
- Preview window shouldn't clip the top of your content anymore.
Thanks but thats not correct. When I resize the artboard i get a dotted line at the spot where the preview stops. I can resize the artboard but it doesn't effect the preview.
I have the same issue,
You can select all Your artboards and then change its mode (landscape/portrait), change it and then change it back again, this had helped me.
I'm running into this issue as well, and would love a solution to this.
The prototype mode only supports the sizes predefined by the XD app.
If you decide to design at 1080 x 1920 for an Android app for example, the prototype will clip the preview.
I don't think this was tested. But its pretty obvious to me. Shame on Adobe for releasing this feature without doing basic testing.
Just to clarify the current behavior...
In most cases, if you resize an existing artboard to be taller, it automatically turns into a scrolling artboard. The original height will be the viewport size seen in the preview, and the new height will be the total height of the content that you can scroll around within that viewport.
So for example, in the original screenshot above you may have started with the "Web 1280" artboard size and then resized it taller -- it looks like it's 1280x1024 in the screenshot? Whenever you select anything inside the artboard, you'll see a blue dotted line indicating the viewport height (and in the Preview window or web sharing view, you can use the mousewheel or trackpad to scroll vertically).
Automatically making a scrolling artboard is handy, but unfortunately it's not always what you want. So, in our next update we'll give you options to turn scrolling on or off on any artboard.
In the meantime, if you want a taller artboard to just be tall -- never scroll -- then you can use this workaround:
- Select the artboard tool
- Drag to draw a new artboard as a custom size
- Optional: Type width/height values in the properties panel to get a more precise size
- Locate one of your old artboards that has unwanted scrolling turned on. Marquee-select over the entire artboard to select everything on it, then cut-paste the content onto the new artboard.
Artboards that were drawn by dragging with the Artboard tool will never have scrolling auto turned on. After step 3, you can use Cmd-D to duplicate the blank artboard you created if you have multiple old artboards to fix.
I know that workaround is a bit clunky -- but luckily it's temporary. In our next release, you'll be able to select (or multi-select!) artboards and just turn off scrolling directly.
Hope that helps explain things!
Was the control to turn off scrolling ever implemented? I am working with the latest release and cannot find it.

Yes, you can turn it off in the property inspector when you select the artboard. Turn the "scrolling" selection from Vertical to None to turn the scrolling off.
Hope that helps,
