Spacing

Overview

Padding

The Padding of an element determines how much space exists between the content of the element and its border.

Margins

The Margin of an element determines how much space exists between the border of an element and the next element.

Adjusting Margins

The Margin option has four text boxes, one at the top of the element, one at the bottom of the element, one to the right of the element, and one to the left of the element. By clicking in one of these text boxes and adding a value (any positive or negative rational number), you can change how much space exists between one element and the next. 

Adjusting Padding
