    Default Panorama Photo Slider

    I was taking a look around the Magix website and on Xara webdesign premium page I found this but it doesn't exist in the designs gallery - any ideas?

    I just checked my version of WDP - 12.6.2.49603 dated April 25 2017
    The Magix site shows May 2017 for the panoramic slider - I checked for updates for my version and all I got was an update for online designer - anyone explain this situation to me?

    Do you have Web Designer Premium? The only thing I could see on that screen shot was for Premium users only.

    You can do this with the Xara Slideshow Widget. With the stretch option you can fit the hole width of a screen. This widget is hostet at Xara. In the last Update is this widget missing. Why???
    I'd luckily a backup of the Design Gallery Content and was able to rebuild the widget in the actual gallery. It's still online.

    The last screenshot shows the „catindex” in c:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Xara\XtremePro\12\Cac he\designs\eng\components\imagecomponents\slidesho ws\catindex.txt. This entry you must enter.

    Xara, unlike the cobblers' pixies snuck in one night and stole the widget away. In doing so, they changed catindex.txt so if you perform a refresh on your components, the missing entries then allows Xara to come into your house and rob you of the widget, stored locally.

    Kate Moir promised it would be back in "early" November, which, in my my book, means Wednesday coming.
    Your detail is helpful but, I believe, once you have updated you local gallery, it's gone for good.

    I understand that I can use the "fix" ypu mention, but I'm still curious as to why Xara/Magix would post this as a new feature as of May this year, but no-one can find it......

    No slider update as promised by Kate Moir by early November.

    A press release.
    A sales movie.
    No API for Smart Shapes.
    No update to the applications.
