Issues with upfront, cannot edit already saved settings

First time using upfront, been playing with upfront today and the spirit theme, been following the instructions https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/upfront-basics/

I cannot scale uploaded images to the slider, only part of the images are visible, it does not allow me to do any of the scaling or cropping as described in the instructions, I upload the image and it loads itself into the slider and sits there, I cannot delete those images either, when I click the X in the image corner, this field disappears for 2 sec or so and then reopen and the images are still there.

Maps.
It is stuck on Use Custom Map Code, I can't edit any of the options there, Map Style, Controls or tick Show Markers, all it does is open the Custom Map Code window when I click any of the options.
