Responsive Composition widgets, Forms, and Slideshows

New in Adobe Muse CC (August 2017)

Adobe Muse now supports a complete set of responsive widgets. Slideshows, Composition Widgets, and Contact Forms are now fully responsive in Adobe Muse 2017.1. You can now use these widgets in your layout, with a single click.

Previously, you had to pin, realign, and resize widgets like Forms or Lightbox Display whenever you created a responsive website with several breakpoints. Now, you simply have to drag the widgets into the design canvas and watch the widgets resize and adapt as the screen size changes. 

See the following animation that displays the fluid nature of a Composition widget.
