Separator / Whitespace


This element allows you to separate content with invisible whitespace, predefined vertical separators or custom ones that you can design for yourself.

Examples of the separator/whitespace element.


Vertical space between the elements.

Did you know that the Separator / Whitespace element can be used to modify the vertical space between two elements such as sections, paragraphs or headings? Let’s see how we can do that:

  • Drag and drop the Separator / Whitespace element between the two elements.
  • Select Whitespace from the dropdown options.
  • Enter a numerical value in the height field to modify the space.

To tighten the space between the elements try a negative number in the height field.
