Prototype tool not showing sizes correctly

Prototype tool not showing sizes correctly

April 18, 2019 at 4:48pm
So, I have my Desktop HD Artboard created in Sketch (1440 x 1024 resized) but when I click on "Preview", it shows up 1090px wide. This means there's no way I can preview it at real size. Any solutions? I'm using a Macbook Pro 2017, 13 inch screen (2560 x 1600).
Thanks

When you intend to use the prototype tool you need to first set-up your artboard to match the desired viewport. Then you need to save that viewport as a custom size and use it to create all of your designs. . You can always enlarge your artboard after the fact when you're designing but Sketch remembers the original viewport settings and uses it as what defines the boundaries of your prototype. . QUOTE: If you’re using custom drawn Artboards in your document and you play back your prototype in Sketch, or elsewhere, you’ll probably notice that your Artboards appear zoomed out, fitting to the height of the viewport rather than scrolling the way you expect them to.
For Sketch to understand what ‘screen size’ you’re designing for, you must first select an Artboard preset or create a Custom Preset of your own.
To create an Artboard that scrolls when you preview a prototype, simply use a built-in or custom Artboard preset and change the height of the Artboard, once it’s on the Canvas. UNQUOTE . You can find specific instructions in Sketch's documentation or see an overview in this blog post. https://blog.sketchapp.com/an-in-depth-look-at-prototyping-in-sketch-942394341f3c
