I think this is a glitch and it is making web design challenging. Whenever I add a Slide Show Gadget reguardless of size and where it is, it always shifts vetically changing the formatt of the entire site. Published positions are unexpected. See included image. I created an overlay to show the difference.
Thanks for the feedback.
You may attempt the options posted throughout this thread. The product team has received the request for change and will consider it for a future release however they currently have no plan to make a change in this area. I apologize for any inconvenience.
I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.
Here is another example. In this case the slide show is inserted into the first line of text and justified to the right using the paragraph style that puts all the text on the right side of the frame.
In the overlay example I have included the slide show is ignoring both vertical and horizontal placement. What is going on?
It only seems to work if all the images are the same dimensions and you resize the module to them. Even then there are unwanted margins/padding added.
I just noticed the same thing happened on that linked page in IE - but is fine in Firefox. How anyone is supposed to build a site with all these bugs is beyond me.

Thanks for coming to the communities with your concerns about are slideshow publishing in the wrong spot.
1) Are you resizing the slideshow?
2) Have you tried using different zone sizes?
3) If you use a zone that is closer fitted to the size that you want the slideshow, do you still have this issue?
I tend to have this issue when using a slideshow that is in a larger zone and I resize the slideshow.

When transferring from OLSB to Office 365 I used past slide show sizes (custom) which worked with the formatting of the rest of the pages (prefereabble).
In the latest sample image, the slide show is sized to the exact resolution of the images (all images the same) and a zone is shrink wrapped around it as if to force it in a poistion. Yet, there is still unintentional shifting happening once published.
Yes. The sample image provided demonstrates this.
If I impliment a slide show that does not need to be off center to coordinate with other objects and is simply placed in it's own page, there is unintentional shifting downward as well, so even in the most simplest of context, the slide show does not follow its original formatting.
I can confirm that the Slide Show Gadget works as expected in Firefox. This pertains to slideshows with modified sizes and irregular image sizes.
Please fix in IE.

Would you explain your issue in further detail?
The illustrations above explain it well.
The new O365 website is going to have go live in 14 days. Is the glitch going to be solved by then?!
Do you have the images uploaded into your website image library to Insert the image from the ribbon or did you copy and paste it directly from OLSB to the Office 365 website?
I have saved the images to my computer for both archival purposes and for use on the new O365 pages. I did not copy and paste. Good question though.
For anyone else watching this thread with slide show gadget issues, Microsoft has contacted me and communication about the problem was very successful. The issue has been confirmed and is being upgraded for further sampling.
