I have a library of cover thumbnails that I use in projects. It looks great when the files are all grouped and shown in the single project view but from the main screen, thumbnails are cut off on the sides and shown in a cropped aspect ratio. I’ve followed the guides from the Figma Docs about safe zone and sizing but it’s kind of disappointing that there is a view that doesn’t play by those rules.
Has anyone found a solution to show the full cover thumbnail in a project container?
Got it! In this case I think this would suit more into the #product-ideas category so people can vote for it and raise the issue to the Figma team. Feel free to edit your topic. There are no solutions to this (other than simply changing your thumbnail template so it fits into the smaller preview too).
I’d like to use thumbnails to give a quick overview over the projects and files I am working on. With different aspect ratios it is fairly annoying to try and find something that fits all the aspect ratios that is currently used. Would like for you to change it to 16:9
In our team we have 20+ projects and in all of them except for one project the thumbnail / cover template we use work perfectly, but for some reason in 1 single project, all the thumbnails is cut off the same way as shown in the screenshot from Nick. And this in the same view (team-view).
