However, you can also use the FILE protocol by specifying file:// at the beginning of the value in the URL.

In addition to fixed screen resolutions, dashboards support proportional sizing. When a dashboard uses proportional sizing, its frames resize relative to the size of the browser window.
NOTE:As a best practice, design dashboards using the fixed sizing mode, and then switch to proportional sizing before you save. You can resize free text items to a smaller size, but not to a larger size.
