Form Displays Too Small

Hello. I created a customized form from a Sharepoint list that has been working fine until the other day. I set the display settings to 1185x1600 which was the perfect size, and the form would take up most of the screen for easy viewing and entry. Now, when the form is opened it displays on the right side of the screen (where the list details screen opens) and is extremely small. After reading several posts and the Known Issues list, cleared my cache and reset the display settings, and republished the form multiple times. None of these 'fixes' have resolved the issue.  Is this a Power Apps glitch or is could there be something wrong with the form? 

Not applicable

Chiming in here as I am having this issue as well. Hopefully somebody else knows a fix!

This has been happening to me for awhile now. In my experience with this issue changing the display resolution in the settings on powerapps to something and reverting has worked. It might take more than one try...

It's honestly a hilarious bug, dumb things like this still fall through the cracks and aren't repaired.

Hi @jnernst , @kptyh  and @uiterlex ,

You need to set the Form Width to an actual pixel value (not Parent.Width) - it seems Power Apps at times will not recognise the new Settings width and tries to "squeeze it in"

It was all set to a definite. Form was just appearing wonky... tried changing display setting and that didn't do any magic for me. What I did that finally worked, this time around, was going into the versions of the form within SharePoints form settings... it took a few tries (almost a dozen) but it worked.

Sorry, i didn't say what I did within the form settings>versions. I restored the previously published version and republished it. Won't work perfectly, but eventually you'll get your form back!
