Commonly Asked Questions

Is there a way to add links or thumbnails to slides?

Yes! We've added linking abilities in version 1.2.

I've enabled the "Fullscreen" setting in the widget options panel, but the slideshow isn't previewing fullscreen in the browser.

The widget also needs to be set to full browser width in Muse design mode in order to display fullscreen.

Captions are always shown unless disabled in the Caption Mode dropdown in the Slideshow Settings section in the widget option panel
