Testing on Surface Pro 3 display ratio RRS feed

  • Question

  • The surface pro 3 was announced today. Unfortunately it has yet another different display ratio: 3:2.  The application I have developed is a prime candidate to use on a Surface Pro 3 but has been designed largely for use on widescreen display.

    How can I test the new surface pro aspect ratio using the Windows simulator?  3:2 is not available.

  • You can use a larger display and split the windows so one is 3:2

  • Tried that at 2560*1440@180, but the largest size I can split the window to is about 1940px.  Whether this is relevant also depends on the percentage size increase. Is it using 180 or 140?

  • I'd guess it's using 180, but I didn't see that specified in the announcement.

  • Thanks.  Any ideas where I would go about finding this out? I kind of need to get this sorted because I'm designing a whole series of forms and I need to figure out what the minimum width can be on the surface pro 3.  Software is really designed for a wide screen, just need to make sure that I can cope on the slightly thinner Pro 3 screen.

  • I suspect we won't know until it's available, but I'll see if I can find out next week. In general we cannot discuss any information which isn't already publically available.

  • I have a surface 3 pro now but there seems to be no way to test at the correct resolution and Ratio. Any update on this
