    Default Missing Xara Slideshow widget

    Hi, I looked in the content catalog and cannot find the Xara Slideshow widget. Has something changed in Xara Web Designer Pro 365? I had it before but cannot find it anymore, even tried to update the catalog with no success.

    Thank you

    Roly

    I guess it has been deprecated and replaced by new slideshows. I noticed a few new ones have been added.

    From Insert menu, Online Content Catalog > Image Resources > Photo Slideshows and Galleries.

    Many of the slide shows are marked New. But alas the Xara Slideshow is nowhere to be found. Often times these slideshows and widgets are produced and/or licensed by third parties and the licenses are not always renewed.

    Thanks Gary, I copied a copy that I had used in an other website and modified it to my current needs. Is this a problem if the widget license was not renewed by Xara?

    I sent a request for clarification to Xara. Check back in a day or two and maybe we will know more.

    Hi Roly, the slideshow widget has been removed temporarily, it will be back next month. In the meantime any existing ones will still work and can be edited, and it's fine to copy and edit the slideshow from your other website.

    Kate, this is what rankles the most.

    Some Xara users actually rely on your templates and widgets.
    To lose one from access, both on-line and locally saved shows me how easy it will be to lose any downloaded item as you have just demonstrated. Fortunately, I have squirrelled my downloads to a different directory so I can re-invoke those that are not tied to a Xara service.

    Thank you Kate for the update and glad to hear that the widget will be back. This is a very popular widget for many of the people I do work for.

    Ciao
