When you say "preview frame", I take it you mean the window that opens within Awasu when you click on a channel in My Channels and shows the channel's content?

There are two ways to change the way content is presented.
If you look at the navigation toolbar embedded in the channel's window (above the browser pane), you will see a button labelled <i>Format</i>. Click on it and you will see the various presentation options at the bottom. These changes will last until the window is closed.
If you want to change it permanently, open the channel's Properties dialog and in the bottom-right of the Channel page, change the <i>Feed content</i> setting. Note that the default setting for this is <i>Default</i> which means it will use the global setting in the Program Options (Display page). Doing things this way lets you quickly change the setting for all your channels but still allow you override it for the few channels where you want it to be different.
One thing to be aware of is that publishers sometimes only include excerpts in their feeds so even if you have Awasu configured to show full content, it will still look like it's showing excerpts
