The Thumbnail view is useful when you have zoomed in to view a portion of the print; it shows which portion of the page is displayed:

Click and drag on the red box to show a different portion of the page, or click/drag the square at the bottom right hand corner of the red box to zoom in or out further:

 

tng2  or tng3

 

(You can also click and drag the main preview page to move it around).

 

Colour/greyscale printing

When you switch from Colour to Greyscale view using the Colour/greyscale button, the panel at the bottom of the page allows you to alter the brightness and contrast of the greyscale print:
