I have this ImageButton



where crimson_round_button.xml drawable is



and the play_white.png drawable represents only the white play icon in the button.

My final result is this one




A you can see the inner icon looks not aligned with the center of the circle and you can notice that the right and bottom borders are a little bit cropped.

The reason is that the applied background is not fitting the ImageButton, as you can see in this image where I selected the ImageButton in Android Studio preview



I also made a try removing the image from the button, but as you can see the result is always the same, the circle set as ImageButton background is no more a circle, it's cropped on the left side and at the bottom



and setting a 4dp elevation to the ImageButton the cropped border is much more visible



Any idea why this is happening?

TIA

OMG! It's just a problem of the preview in Android Studio and in the emulator (if not really zoomed)!
