You can preview a selected topic only from the Outline Editor in any of the Player modes such as See It!, Try It!, Do It!, and Know It?; document formats such as the System Process Document, Job Aid, Test Document, Training Guide, and Instructor Manual; and the Presentation format.
Note: You can only preview one topic at a time and the topic must have been recorded. You can also only preview a topic in a Player mode if that mode has been enabled on the Properties toolpane of the topic.
When you preview a topic in any format, the Developer uses the settings configured in the Documents, Player, and Presentation options (Tools menu). The Developer also uses the Category setting in the Preview Defaults option to determine which category of publishing styles should be used for previewing content. You should review these settings in Tools, Options before you preview a topic.

Click to preview the topic using the current default or click the down arrow in the Preview list box and select a different format. Your selection becomes the new default.
