Starting today, Associated Content is improving the "Preview" step in the article submission process by giving Contributors a more accurate look at how their content will appear once it's published on our site.
Our old submission process presented Contributors with a rough preview of their article text after it had already been published or submitted for review. Using the new system, you will now be see a realistic preview of your article, exactly as it will appear on AC – before it gets published or submitted.
This update allows you to:
• See how your article will look once it's published, including the alignment around advertisements.
• Preview images, takeaways, resources and other items attached to the article.
• Proofread your article before sending it to us.

Important Note: This change also creates a new step in the publishing process. In the old submission process, content was submitted or published immediately following the "Add Image" step. From now on, you will now need to preview your content and click the "Submit" or "Publish: buttons underneath the content preview. Your content will not be published or reviewed by AC unless you complete this step. As always, you will be able to go back to edit your content by clicking "Make changes now."
What do you think about this update to the submission process? Once you’ve used it a few times, leave some feedback in the comments section of this blog post.
