Crystal Reports V9.0-Why does design mode looks like preview mode?

1. Hi,

My design mode looks like preview that is all white.  What has happened here.  I am in the middle of creating a new report and this annoying.  I will go to Crystal Business objects to do some research.  In the meanwhile,  does anyone have a suggestion?

Thank you,
Lucy

Did you accidentally click the preview icon?

Did you save the report with preview open then close Crystal.
Sometimes if you close Crystal with Preview open when you reopen the report it opens in Preview mode.
