You’ll be able to see a device slider on the page. You can customise the slider from the Style tab.

To do this, go to Style > Carousel Options > Column. Here you’ll find two options –

Single – This will only show one slide at a time.

Multiple – Users can preview the previous and next slides in this slider mode.

If you want to make your slider an infinite loop slider, you can do that by turning on the Infinite toggle.

You can also make the slider autoplay by turning on the Autoplay toggle. Once turned on, you’ll get an option to adjust the autoplay speed as well.

Adjust the slider speed from the Slide Speed section.

Then you’ll find a couple of navigation options, Dots and Arrows. Turn on the respective toggles to enable the navigation options. Once turned on, you’ll get relevant styling options for each navigation type.

If you are using the Multiple column option, you can use Center Padding, Center Slide Effect, Box Shadow and Normal Slide Opacity options to differentiate the center slide item from the rest of the slides.
