Slideshow height update:

In the 3.4.0 version, the Slideshow Height is now automatically set based on your slide content. 

For example, if you have 2 slideshows, when you view each of them, you can see the height of the slideshow is changed. However, when you turn on the “Set Max Height” option, the Slideshow Height is now automatically set based on the highest slide, which means that all the slides of the slideshow will have the same height.
