Preview mode for Visual Canvas
Preview mode for Visual Canvas
Today we are releasing a small update to our preview experience in Canvas which will make it easier to review content before publishing.
From today, our preview panel will allow you to switch between two modes, depending on how you want to interact with your preview;
  • Editing mode - enables visual editing and inline editing, helping users to quickly update content and manipulate components from within preview panel.
  • Preview mode – removes the Uniform editing UI from the preview panel and enables page interactions in order to provide a clean preview experince for reviews and testing.
For more information, check out our documentation.
