Xcode resizing canvas when moving between files

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi there,

Has anyone else had the issue when moving between files (either by the horizontal bar at the top of the screen or the list on the left navigation menu) that the canvas gets resized?

I find that the canvas is expanded taking up 85% of the screen width within Xcode leaving the window with the code being squished with only about 12 characters of text per line being able to be displayed.

I know that I can pin the canvas, but I want the canvas to display the view for the current swift file I am editing.

It's not preventing me from coding, it just means that around 40% of the time when I change between swift files, I need to resize the canvas window which is quite frustrating.

Many thanks in advance!


Small update:

It seems to only occur when I change from a swift file to a swift view file...

Am I missing something in the settings?
