How To Use Shortcodes In Upfront

Hi

Using the Upfront editor I have selected the 'code' widget from the side control panel and dragged that onto the page. I have then selected and tried both 3rd Party and the internal option and entered a short code in the field. Neither one is actually displaying the anything other than the raw shortcake text as if it is not parsing.

How do I do this please?

Thanks
