As with any other dynamic and sophisticated application, MS Visio 2013 also has a feature of displaying live previews whenever you make any modifications in your document. With the help of the live previews, it becomes easier to assess as how the final output would show once the modifications are committed finally to the creations.

The nature of the live preview is that it dynamically changes the contents on a temporary basis whenever modifications are made to the document. Since while making any changes nothing is permanent, the output displayed because of the live previews are automatically discarded when any other option is used as a part of testing.

MS Visio 2013 has live previews option enabled as per its default configuration. In case you are unable to view the previews which are automatically changed dynamically when you try to make changes in the document, it means that the feature has been accidentally or deliberately disabled.

Whatsoever the reason may be, in order to get the default settings back where the live preview feature remains enabled, you must manually reconfigure your instance of MS Visio 2013.

After going through this tutorial, you will be able to configure your instance of MS Visio 2013 to display the live previews in case the option has been disabled.

Here’s what you need to do:

    ■Log on to the computer on which MS Visio 2013 is installed and is behaving the way described in the title.

    ■Initialize the MS Visio 2013 program by double-clicking its icon.

    ■Open any existing Visio document or create a new one to get the basic interface of the program.

    ■On the opened interface, click the FILE tab.

    ■From the displayed list, go to Options.



    ■On the opened Visio Options box, from the left pane, make sure that the General category is selected.

    ■From the right pane, under the User Interface options section, check the Enable Live Preview checkbox.



    ■Once done, click OK to save the changes.

    ■Close and restart the MS Visio 2013 application to allow the changes to take effect.

    ■If the problem persists, restart the computer and then try modifying any existing MS Visio 2013 document to see the live previews.
