You may preview the completed sign using the preview button at the top of the Content Manager screen.  You will only be able to view content types that the local PC has been configured to display (e.g. to preview a sign running with a PowerPoint content type, PowerPoint, or PowerPoint viewer must be installed on the Content Manager PC).
