Hi,

Is there a way to display a text box with every slide in Slide Show tool ?

This works with Carousel object.

Doesn't work with Slideshow object.
1. In object manager, slideshow is a single object. Individual slide image is not an object.
2. In Slideshow properties, individual image has no option for linked text object.
3. In style tab, if we choose "Caption" then the caption box takes the whole length of as the image as there is NO "width" control. Even if we want to use this as a temporary option instead of of an "event" trigger as desired.

Correct, a slideshow only supports images. That is why I my suggested to use the Carousel instead.

Thanks Pablo, will change to Carousel.

I think if you add a "Width" field to Caption control in Slideshow, it will give some flexibility for text message per slide. Let us know if future builds will take this up.
