Web Direct layout size vs device screen size

Hi all,

I’m working on a FM 12 > 16 project.
There is a big IWP component that I'm testing for WD compatibility.
The technicians use Samsung Galaxy 5’s.

 

I've found a major issue…

 

In IWP, the layout size adapts perfectly to the screen size.
And if I need to pinch to zoom in or out, I can.

 

But in WD, the layouts appear much larger than the screen, and CANNOT be pinched to fit.
The only way to see everything is to scroll around.

 

According to the FM 16 WD Help, this is normal behavior (see "wd help" screenshot).

This is a major bummer.

Seems like the only solution is for me to re-build every layout.

 

However, here’s the weird thing...

 

The resolution of the Samsung Galaxy 5 is 1920 x 1080.
My FM layouts are 959 points wide.
If WD is displaying these layouts at their actual size, why don’t they fit?

 

The attached screenshots show essentially the same layout in IWP and WD.

The layout shown is 959 points wide, yet it is cut off in WD, where the screen width is 1920.
