Preview and Outline Models

Today, I learned about the functions of the Outline and Preview modes.

Outline mode

A feature that can be helpful when trying to look, select, and manipulate content is the Outline Mode.

When working with a group objects in Isolation Mode and needing to see a lot less detail, go to the View menu then choose Outline. Once selected, the outlines for the paths and text blocks appear. This doesn’t work on bitmap because there are no vector points to outline within a bitmap.

You can toggle between Outline and Preview mode by using the shortcut Ctrl+Y (Command+Y for Mac). Preview works by giving you the best representation what this content will look like when it prints.
