The Text transition setting allows you to choose which animation style for loading the slide's text. You can choose from: None, Fade in, Fade up, or Fade down.

The Change slides every setting allows you to adjust the number of seconds it takes to change slides within your slideshow. Choose from 0 - 12 seconds. Choosing 0 seconds means that the customer will have to manually click through the slides instead of them changing automatically.
Enable the Show arrows setting for arrows to display on top of the images in each slide. To hide the arrows, simply disable this setting.
The layout settings include options to adjust the spacing and width for the Slideshow with Text section.
The width can either be set to Standard or Wide. Selecting Wide will spread out the full width of the screen. Selecting Standard will keep the section in a container and not spread the full width.
You can choose to add space (padding) above and below the section by adjusting the Top spacing and Bottom spacing settings.
The Animation setting will determine how the feature appears as it loads. The options for animation are None, Fade in, Fade in down, Fade in left, Fade in right, Slide in left, Slide in right, and Zoom.
Add Custom CSS to the feature for further tweaking. You can even create your own CSS class here, as well. Check out this article for more information: Flex Guide: Custom CSS Feature
