Preview Pane in Microsoft Sway

Explore the Preview Pane in Microsoft Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway

OS: Works in a browser, or as an app

The Sway interface essentially is tri-paned. The first of the three panes typically shows content based on what you have selected from the toolbar – so you see the All Cards pane if you have selected Cards in the toolbar. The second pane is the Storyline, which is the editing environment for your Sways. Finally, the third area is the Preview pane, highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.

The other three buttons located at the bottom right of the Preview pane are shown highlighted in blue within Figure 2, earlier on this page. These buttons are explained below from left to right:

Restart: Click this button to preview your Sway production from the first Card. This is helpful if you are on the last or middle Cards of your Sway. You can then click this button to jump to beginning of your Sway.

Go Back: Click this button to view the previous Card of your Sway.

Go Forward: Click this button to view the next Card of your Sway.

You can click the Play button, shown highlighted in green within Figure 3, above to preview the Sway in full screen mode. Learn more in our Play Options in Sway tutorial.
