Now, one final thing I want to point out to you, we briefly touched on it a little while and that is something toward the preview mode. When we look at our page, we can see all of the guides, the margins, the columns, the gutters, the borders and the bleed at the same time. If we want to get rid all of all that and just see the elements that are on our page, we can hit the W key to activate the preview mode, which gives us a nice clean, almost printed view of our document or so anything that appears out here in this gray area, which is called paste board will actually be removed. So maybe we have some images or some copy that we are still working on which is going to be placed in the document, preview mode will actually remove that, but there are actually three preview modes we can choose from.
If you come down here to the bottom of the tools palette, you can see the two icons, which is switched between non-preview mode and regular preview mode, but if you click on the preview icon, you can see that we are currently viewing regular preview. We also have bleed mode, which will show us the page plus the 5-mm bleed we have around the outside and we also have slug mode, which would show us just the page in any slug that we have maybe off the bottom, but we are not using that at all at this point. So if you do need to switch between the modes, these are more than likely the ones that you will actually use, but do make sure that set back to just regular preview mode, hit the W key again just to turn off the preview mode because – do not forget we created these guides on the master page. I just want to double check that these now appear on every page in our document. So let us come back up at the pages palette, double click to go page one, we can see our 20 and 170-mm guides are there. If we now go between each of the spreads pages two and three and four and five, everything is now in the right place. We have got our items positioned accurately ready for us to do our layout and that is exactly where we are going to begin in the next lesson.
