How to Preserve Portfolio Items When Switching Themes from Voxco Theme to Scalia Theme
Must change all the portfolio items into posts with a plugin “Post Type Switcher” before switching the theme then switch them all back to being portfolio items. Scalia has a different enough portfolio system for them not to transfer across otherwise.

Where there are Owl_Slider widgets on a page can be better to delete everything and start again but:
The best way:
Activate the Voxco Framework Plugin so that the Owl Slider elements show in the backend editor.
Make notes in a word processor page of all the names of the .jpg images referred to in these elements where abouts they are on the page.

View Portfolio Item to check that the bracketed shortcodes are gone.
Add Single Image elements as replacements with Full size and centre alignment.
Check front end.
