Managing Paddings and Margins for ShortPoint Design Elements

Use the Spacing tab of your ShortPoint Design Element to manage its inner (padding) and outer (margin) spacing:


Spacing tab


By default, margins and paddings are set automatically. However, you may change them to your own preference, or set different spacing for different devices.



Custom padding


This option allows you to set the padding - inner spacing of the Design Element content. 


Custom padding


By default, the padding values are set in px (pixels), but you may as well use percentage, %. Simply type the desired spacing for the top, bottom, left and right sides. 

For example, this is how it will look like if you put 20% padding-right value:

Advanced padding

Here, you can:

  • Apply different padding for Tablet Devices;
  • Apply different padding for Mobile Devices.


You can apply the needed values in the same way as in the main settings:
