Play Options in Sway

Explore Play options in Microsoft Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway

OS: Works in a browser, or as an app

After you create a Sway, or even while you are editing, you can use the Preview Pane to see results. Yet, seeing a preview in a pane is no substitute for regular, full-screen viewing! To do the latter, you can use the Play option and enjoy your Sway in full-screen view. Follow these steps to explore along:

  1. Create a new Sway or open an existing Sway. Figure 1 below shows an existing Sway, opened.

  2. Now click the Play button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, above. This will play the Sway in full-screen mode, as shown in Figure 2 below.

There are four options on the top-right in Play view. These options are explained below, as marked in Figure 2 above:

  1. Edit: Clicking this button will close Play view, and take you back to the Normal edit view in Sway with the conventional tri-paned Sway interface.
  2. Change the navigation layout of this Sway: Click to bring up a drop-down menu, as shown in Figure 3. Here you will find the Navigation options which enables you to specify how you want others to navigate your Sway by selecting a layout. Currently, there are only three options available. Explore more in our Navigation in Sway tutorial.
