Sorry, I didn't understand your question.

Please show something (maybe a screenshot of what you have) and describe a bit more in detail, what you want.

A shot into darkness: If you see only black lines on white background and you see in the title of your document Outline view - then try to use shortcut [Ctrl]+[Y]

Vikhtor,

 

For cases where the back view is the mirrored front view (neither identical nor completely different as in a head), you can reflect (a copy): Object>Transform>Reflect, using the default Vertical Axis.

If you're talking about switching from the Outline View like this:

You can use the View>Preview on CPU menu command, or the keyboard shortcut Cmd/Ctrl+Y (depending on whether you're using a Mac or Windows system, respectively) will switch you back to a view like this:

Hope this helps,
