Preview

Toggles between the preview and design mode of the Designer, allowing you to see how your form will look when published.

 

Show / Hide the Controls Panel

When using the editor, the default view pins the controls panel to the left side of the screen. It’s useful for when you’re designing, but not so much when you want to preview how everything looks on the page. 

One way to collapse the panel is to click the arrow along the right edge of it:
