iPhone screen width is 324px wide, but iOS picker is only 214 wide


I can’t see any way to expand the width of the iOS picker so it fits. If I try to adjust the width, it just snaps back to 214px wide.

The picker is supposed to fill the width of the iPhone.

What am I doing wrong?


Hi @msallin and sorry for the hassle with this.

The default width of the iPhone 5 (or SE) is 282px so the IOS picker should work fine there.

That being said, we definitely need to make the control resizeable so that it can fit the other iPhone sizes. I’ve just given this request a nudge, thanks for the report. :slight_smile:

Seems this hasn’t been updated. There not very useful if you can’t resize it.


Sorry about that, @Dave_Jackson.

We have been pretty heads-down on the updated Desktop app. When that’s done, we will circle back around to features and fixes like this.


We found this to be a problem too.

We created bespoke symbols for the iPhone that sized the screen at the actual pixel size we needed. (375px in our case.)

If you aren’t too worried about showing the surrounding iPhone you can just define your display area using a rectangle.


For reference these are the mock-ups we use for iPhone and iPad pixel accurate design:
