What is Hot Actions?

Hot Actions is a Live Mode feature that allows you to resize [1] margins (spaces outside the border of the Design Element) and [2] paddings (spaces within the border of the Design Element) through a simple click-and-drag action. 

Paddings and margins

With Hot Actions, you no longer need to guess spacing values to fit your design. You also do not need to toggle between your settings window and page preview to see the result. The action happens right where you can see it.
