Please excuse me for not being able to figure this out.  I have tried to find the information everywhere and I think I've watched every screen cast on the feature slider as well as read the docs and I can't find what I'm looking for.

I need to be able to adjust the margins and format the text on my feature. Right now, the title is almost in the middle of the feature, and my words run off the page if I have a static height.  When I change to aspect ration height, all my text will show up, but the margins are huge.  I need to be able to adjust this.  I'm sure there is a simple answer.  Thank you for your help.

Hi,

 

Do you have Firebug for Firefox (

)? That will help you identify the proper CSS elements.  The slider's elements are generally speaking, fully customizable and each has its own CSS element, so the key is finding the right one to achieve your desired result.

 

Chrome's Inspection Tool works as well.

I don't have those tools.  I was hoping not to have to customize the CSS. :-) I haven't ever done that before...I guess I have a learning curve ahead of me. I will get to work.  Thank you!

Hi Kristina, if you've not used css inside the Framework before check out -

Kristina,

 

Chrome's Inspection Tool is built into the Chrome browser.  Firebug is free and integrates easily and seamlessly into Firefox browser.

 

It took me about 2 short afternoons to get a good understanding of it.
