I am using Creator 8.2XE. Yes, you are right, the pictures change location in the sequence of the slideshow and sone added panels disapear or multiply, but when you hit the the "Preview Button", the slideshow runs as you had planned it.
In answer to the rest of your questions. From the main menu I was opening "PHOTO" and using the "Slideshow Assistant. I have since been looking at the main menu and started with "HOME", found "APPLICATIONS" and saw "VIDEO WAVE". I'll try using this application.
Thanks for all of the "HELP".
