Configuring the view in the preview pane

Referring to the previous image, you can configure the view in the preview pane to see how your asset appears under different conditions.

  • Date picker (date_range)—Displays the item selected in the Context picker as it will appear on the selected date. For example, if you scheduled different versions of the item for publication at different dates, and you select May 31, 2019 in the Date picker, the preview pane displays the item as it will appear on May 31, 2019.
  • Media picker—Displays the preview as it appears in various media, such as a desktop browser, a tablet in landscape orientation, or a tablet in portrait orientation.
  • Context picker—Displays the preview as it appears in the context of a referencing item. For example, if a headshot is referenced by an author’s bio, selecting the bio in the Context picker shows how the headshot appears in the context of the bio.
