Set Margins and Paddings

You can determine the amount of space in pixel size between any section of the webpage and between the edge of the section and the text within it. The margin is the space between sections, and the padding is the space from the section edges to the text within it.

How to Set the Margin and Padding

  1. From the tree-view of the Site Designer, select the section or sub-section where you want to change the margins or padding.
  2. Select the Margin and Padding tab to view the property fields.
  3. Type the pixel size for the top, right, bottom, and left sides of the section in the Margin box.

    The margin is the space between sections, column, and boxes. For the Page section it would be the space between the Page and your browser toolbar.

  4. Type the pixel size for the top, right, bottom, and left sides of the section in the Padding box.

    The padding is the space from the box edges to the text within it. You can set the padding amount in the Body section and any of the sub-sections, which would apply to the boxes in the section. You cannot set padding for the Page as a whole.

  5. Click Apply.
