Just to confirm-make those changes in Pro, correct?
The options captionPosition and imageScaleMode are Pro options.
Inlcude them in your gallery's XML file as attributes in the opening ,simpleviewergallery> tag. If your gallery uses the Pro 'svcore' folder, then these options will be used in displaying the gallery. If your gallery uses the Standard 'svcore' folder, then these options will be ignored.
Im actually having better luck using the free version, as far as the blank spaces Im getting.
SimpleViewer-Pro provides much greater control over all aspects of gallery layout.
Take a look at the SimpleViewer-Pro Layout Guide and the available SimpleViewer-Pro Config Options.
I posted a link to a screen shot.
