Can Accordance do 21:9 aspect ratio?

I am thinking that this new, wider ratio will enhance parallel text presentation on large screen monitors (TV sets).

It looks like after getting "everyone" to change to 16:9, the industry is now going to get "everyone" to buy a new TV set in 21:9. Maybe the MacBook will come out that way making the new MacBooks rather wide.

"21:9 (2.33:1) is the approximated screen aspect ratio of the true value 64:27 (2.370:1) in comparison to the common ratio of 16:9 (1.77:1). It is designed to show films recorded in CinemaScope or the modern anamorphic format of 2.39:1. The main benefit of this screen ratio is the absence of the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when viewing content in this format, and a constant display height when displaying other content with a lesser aspect ratio." -- Wikipedia

Considering the Accordance window is flexible, I assume it will work with any screen's aspect ratio.

The ultra-wide monitors appeal to me because I believe they would be ideal for putting Accordance and a word processing app side by side. I use BetterSnapTool (in the Mac App Store) to do this already, but I imagine an ultra-wide would facilitate this layout better.

A key in buying any ultra-wide monitor is making certain that your computer will support its native resolution.
