what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG)

What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) means "what you see is what you get". It is both an abbreviation and a catchphrase for a form of presentation in which printed graphics correspond exactly to the presentation on the screen, i.e. circles are not deformed into ellipses or squares into rectangles.

In other programs, WYSIWYG means that the effects of parametric changes are not immediately visible on the screen, as in Word, PowerPoint or CorelDraw, but can only be called up and displayed after the changes have been made. The term WYSIWYG is also used in web design. It is used to describe HTML editors that work with drag-and-drop and the representation of the HTML page corresponds to the later representation on the browser.
