Powerapp automatically resizing smaller after opening, making it unusable

Attached is a picture of my PowerApp.  I saved it and it was working fine but when I tried to open it again it was resized smaller. This made it impossible to use and to fix it is more than just dragging the screen to make it bigger but going in and fixing all the little tiny parts of it.  I was wondering why this was happening. This is the second PowerApp this has happened to and it forces me to create a new PowerApp altogethet because of the complications.  I have tried to revert back to older versions but to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem and know a solution?

Re: Powerapp automatically resizing smaller after opening, making it unusable

Hi @jasons3,


Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you mean that the Gallery control would be resized automatically when you open your app?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please check if you have set the Width and Height property of the Gallery control to a dynamic variable (a formula).


In addition, please also take a try to turn off/disable the "Improved app rendering (final validation)" option within Advanced Settings of App settings, then check if the issue is solved.1.JPG
