  • New: You can choose to protect the left side large images in the Slides by using the new option ‘Protect the Large Images from Copying’. The right click on the image will not show the ‘Save Image’ or ‘Open Image’ option,  but the images an only be retrieved by looking into the html source.
  • Fix: When the slide was not linked to any url, the ‘content’ and ‘title’ settings like the font color, size etc. were not applied to the elements of the slider. Fixed the issue
