Lock Aspect Ratio White Space

Hello beautiful community,


I have a problem with my app.


It was working perfectly, but after I disabled the Lock Aspect Ratio and enabled it. Now when you open the app, it is shifted to the left with white space on the right...

Hi @Sababneh,


The below is the symptom for the Lock Aspect Ratio:


If you lock the aspect ratio, the app will retain the appropriate aspect ratio for a phone. If the app is running on another kind of device, the app will display incorrectly and may show unwanted results. If you unlock the aspect ratio, the app will adjust to the aspect ratio of the device on which it's running.

Please take a try to disable the Lock Aspect Ratio, then check to see if the App could render correctly.

The Lock Aspect Ratio was working perfectly, and the screen was in the middle.


After I disabled it and enabled it, it shifted to the left with white space on the right as you see on the attached screen shot in the topic.


Thank you
