Stock Preview

The Stock Preview feature allows the job stock to be visualized with editing the job or selecting the root item in the operation manager. The stock preview shown in the operation manger is automatically hidden when the operation manager is made inactive. This feature allows the user to immediately verify that the stock has been set up properly without entering the solid verification.
