Why my app shows as left aligned?

Dear Experts,

 

I want to say that I am done with my app. I want to thank everyone who helped me and shaped me to achieve this. This means a lot to me. I will thank to every person from their name when I find a solution for this issue. 

 

My concern is,  the app shows as left aligned when I open the app from the sharing link as follows, 

As you can see from below image there are space in the right side. I want it to have center align. Can I do that?

Check the X property of gallery, form, or controls that are placed directly on the screens in your app.  The X, Y coordinates set the upper left corner of the controls in reference to the screen or the container, like a gallery or form, they are in.  By setting those values using a formula you can center the app.  For example, if you want to center the header label you would set X = to (screenname.width-labelname.width)/2.  That would take half the whitespace on the screen and place it to the left of the label.

The reason was the advance settings "Optimize embedding appearance"

Well done on creating your first app @OsmandFernando! I'm really delighted for you. It's wonderful to see all the help that you've received from the community. Big kudos to everyone here!

 

@OsmandFernando 
Thank you. The "Optimize embedding appearance" was causing the leftward shift.  Sorta the opposite of optimizing appearance. 

Again, Thank you.
