HI. I like the recent changes execpt those to picture widget. Namely it no longer centers in the frame, but left justifies. As a result it is no longer possible to center an image above a block of text within the same column. Sorry but to me this is a real pain in the backside and a backward step in my opinion.

Hello Rob,

We did recently make a change to how widgets are aligned in the page by default. However, you can still center your images as follows:

1) Click on the Picture widget on your page.

2) Click on the "Properties" tab on the right of your screen.

3) Under "Position" you will see three icons that allow you to left, center or right align the widget. Click the icons to align your widget as desired.

We made this change because left aligned images generally make your page layout look more attractive, but you can still align them as you wish. We realize that this is a bit of an adjustment for users who are used to the old way and we apologize for any confusion.

Please let me know if you have any difficulty with these instructions.

Thanks, but this now makes my site development rather tedious (take a look at www.rtb2oneperday and www.rtb2walks.co.uk). Plus may I ask if this "hidden option" is documented anywhere, and are there any other options we users may find useful but not know about.

Actually left aligned images can tend to look amaturish if not correctly sized!

Thanks for your reply anyway, do you have any more changes planned that will slow down site formatting?
