Preview view vs blueprint view

Hi, when setting I changed the text size to 24sp, the blueprint view text became larger than the preview view text. This isn't an issue when i change the unit of measure to px. Is this because of user preference setting?

Also, in general, what is the difference between the preview view and blueprint view, and what is the purpose of the blueprint view?

Hi Joshua! I'm not sure what's going on with your text, but the blueprint view and the preview view are both showing the same thing. Sometimes when you've got a lot going on it can be difficult to see everything on the preview view. In this case the blueprint view can be really helpful; it aims to show the UI without too much clutter making it easier to see how everything is laid out.

I have the same issue but cannot find an explanation
