Responsive Composition, Slideshows, and Forms

This new update adds the support of responsive features in various native widgets from the Widgets Library of Adobe Muse CC. It means that you are now able to use the Resize option available in Muse top bar on all the Slideshows, Compositions, and Forms widgets.

Prior to this update, you had to pin, realign, and resize your widgets when you were working on a responsive website containing several breakpoints. All you have to do now is to drag and drop Muse native widgets in any page of your website, and let the widget resize and adapt its size depending on the browser size. You can also choose which components of the widgets are responsive and which are not by using the Resize option while selecting them.
