Viewing Artwork in Wireframe Mode
By default, Expression Design displays all documents in Preview mode, which reveals all applied attributes, such as fill colors, stroke colors, and effects. However, if you’d like to view the paths that make up the artwork without any attributes applied, you can do so by switching the Display Quality setting to Wireframe mode. This is a great way to take a look at what’s going on “under the hood” of your artwork. Switching to Wireframe mode can also make it easier to locate specific paths that you’d like to select and edit, especially when working with detailed pieces of art.
Change the Display Quality Setting
Under the View menu, choose Wireframe from the Display Quality submenu.
