Presentation (Wide Screen) - After 3 pages Animation is off center

Xara Web Designer Premium v 11
Windows 7 SP1
8 GB

I'm using more features in Xara I never knew were possible. I really like the Presentation (wide screen) feature. It's like a power point presentation without the costly software. It's exactly what I need to use. HOWEVER after about 3 pages and various sub steps then the spinning Cube animation goes off center. Here is link to my latest partial presentation. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or how to fix this problem.?? I've tired various work-a-rounds by moving working pages and putting them in the #3 location. That didn't change the off center shift. Here is my link:

Thanks in advance..

Hi

. . . . 3 pages and various sub steps then the spinning Cube animation goes off center . . . .

Works fine in Firefox, Chrome and Edge.

If you are using Safari then this may be the issue it has some problems with some styles of websites.

Also ensure that you clear the browser cache or refresh the web page several times to ensure you get the latest version of the site.

Bingo..! Another helpful quick reply that fixed my problem. THANKS John.. Your suggestion to clear the browser cache did the trick. I'll remember that as a future standard procedure. The browser I'm using is WaterFox Classic 2020.06. That is like FireFox 56 but with current security patches. I generally don't have browser problems.. and the page now appears fixed.

One thing about Xara's presentation feature.. I notice pages only advance using keyboard arrows or PGUP PGDN buttons. Apparently presentations won't work on mobile devices or tablets cause they don't have keyboards. That's probably not a big problem, I just wanted to know if I was overlooking something.

Thanks for fixing the original post problem.

ll the Best..

They do - try tapping and swiping left or right.

Hi John.. That's good to know Xara presentations work on mobile devices and tablets too. I tried your solution and it worked fine. The better platform is still a DeskTop or LapTop computer due to it's larger display. But for a quick check of my presentation deck good to know I can check it with my phone. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
