    Just installed Fedora 31 in a full up to date Parallels Desktop. Before installing Parallels Tools, I had a correct selection of resolutions available.

    After installing Parallels Tools, the max resolution for 1024x768. Removing Parallels Tools brings back the resolutions.

    Is this expected behavior?

    As a follow-up, this behavior is not exhibited in Ubuntu 19.10.

    Are you still seeing this? How much memory are you giving to the virtual graphics adapter? My Fedora 31 / Gnome guests are working normally with 128mb of video memory. Here's a screen grab from my f31 console when the window is maximized:

    Parallels tools is installed and active:

    Code:
    $ systemctl is-active prltoolsd
    active

    Yes, I still had this issue. I gave up on Fedora in Parallels and am just using Ubuntu instead.
