Allow screen scaling for super ultra-widescreen monitors

When using a super ultra widescreen (32:9 ratio) the full screen is shared so it appears distorted or small on standard monitors. Please allow us to share just the area/resolution of the application we are sharing

    Reviewing the documentation of Webex and screensharing I didn't find an answer to my questions but this request here seems not to be just future consideration anymore seems to be implemented since 17. August 2023 https://help.webex.com/en-us/article/ngexff8/Webex-App-|-Share-only-a-portion-of-your-screen

    this is stupid. Every other platform - Zoom, MS Teams, Skype - all have to capability to scale for ultra wide monitors. Why can't Webex do the same while having Cisco fully supports Hybrid Working.

    We have the same issue 4K 16:9 screens, with space meeting thescreen share resolution is fine but with PMRs it is not good enough.

    Another option that would help resolve the issue is for the user to have the ability to share an individual window, rather than the full application. If I can just share a window of a browser, then the audience should only see that window filled to the max on their side, rather than my entire desktop with only the application being shown.

    On a Samsung G9 and this is a true pain. All other video conferencing software supports this!

    I have to split my screen and change resolution for sharing content to appear correctly or else other users will have to zoom in to the shared content. it sucks and if I share my entire screen then they see everythign and have to position their screen to the window i am wanting them to focus on. we need some type of resize setting when sharing windows on ultra-wide screens (49" screen here as well) like split screen sharing where webex auto resizes the individual shared screens to a set size to appear correctly on participants screens.

    I think that when sharing an application (not full screen) webex should simply crop to the shared portion. Meaning it should crop everything outside of an imaginary box that contains the shared window(s). Currently it transmits an image the resolution of your monitor with most of it greyed out. This cropping would allow webex to work well with any size/aspect ratio/resolution monitor as the person sharing can just resize their application window to make it comfortable for the viewers.

    100% on this especially now people are working from home more and ultrawide seem to be all the rage :)

    Several of my coworkers had to give up their ultrawide screens because of this. It's ridiculous that there isn't capability to deal with this yet - screen sharing is important, and ultrawide screens are getting much more common. Please make this happen, Cisco!
