Since version 4.0, you can also import custom animations, dynamic styles, static styles and images through this! This means the whole Slider with images can be imported and everything will work without any work! 

Choose the Export file (in newer versions this is a .zip. But you can also still use the old .txt files only).

IMPORTANT: Dynamic Styles will always be overwritten, so if you import Sliders from another website, be sure that the exported Slider only uses unique Styles in Captions!

 

Export
