Enlarging 'margin-top' also enlarges 'margin-left' at the same time

Recommended Posts

I've searched the forum but couldn't find any other reports.

When I enlarge the margin-top in the editor of a text box also margin-left gets enlarged. I would think that's an unwanted behaviour. You can see this here:

Hi Jan,

I think it is expected to work like that... at least I do. Works great!

Hi @Jackey I can imagine that if you're used to it it has also benefits, but to me it's a bit illogical that when I move a value for top, left changes too but the left value in the boxes stays empty. Maybe if it's ment that way @Andrew can clarify why.

It is similar how the CSS command "margin: 0 0 0 0;" works. But as an extra you can even omit the first ones. 

LOL I hope this is not going to be changed... that will give me a lot of extra work!

      I am slowly getting closer to something I like for the general appearance of my site. What's currently nagging me is trying to remove the top and bottom padding/margin from the image in the header. It seems that I've done what I want with the menu but there was dead space above the image and between the image and menu.
      Trying out padding and margin settings, I got something that came close to what I want but saw odd behavior along the way. Changing either the top or bottom padding to 0 (from blank), removed all padding from the top and sides but left a small band between the image and menu.
      Setting all eight padding and margin settings to 0 removed all except the band between image and menu. (But it seems that entering 0 in only the top or bottom padding option is all that was needed.)
      So, heading into the twilight zone, I changed the bottom margin to -1. That removed the band but allowed the menu to slightly overlap the image. AND, narrowing the browser, or viewing on a phone, caused the band to reappear.
      Perhaps there's also a problem with the menu but I don't see it.
      So that's where it stands at the moment: http://756.a44.myftpupload.com 
      I seems to me that if there is a default padding value, setting it to 0 should be all that's needed to get the two sections to meet perfectly on any device/browser width.

      Hello There, 
      I am working with Platform 5 and have run into an unnerving problem. I am trying to position my clients picture along the bottom of the container, so that it sits right on the bottom. After a good hour of googling and messing with the CSS I figured I would ask the question here. Below is my screenshot displaying my problem. I will need to do this frequently in the future. 
      My Problem Image
      Unlike in DMS, when I add a margin to an embed or image box it simply makes the container larger while keeping the padding, I cannot have any padding or any space whatsoever on the bottom of my clients image.  Is there a way to remove all padding from the container so I can have this work across screen sizes? If not is there anyway to position an element directly at the bottom of another element in Platform 5? This seems like a basic feature and was easily attainable within DMS. 
      I cannot create an image combining all these elements as it will not scale well on mobile and will make my clients logo unreadable and her face incredibly small. 
       
      Thank you for any help,
      Perry

      Hello,
      I am a bit confused about the usage of percentages for section padding/margin settings in the PL5 UI. Percentages don't scale well for mobile devices (especially in height), so those settings are pretty much useless. Case in point, the defaults are expressed in rem units, not percentages:
      .pl-sn-pad { padding: 1rem; ... } Why force the user to use percentages in the PL5 section UI when it would have been as easy to let the user specify the unit?

      Hi,
       
      I have used the following code in the customize plugin style.css to adjust my typography however there seems to be a lot of padding on top and below my headings as you can see in the link below and attached screenshot.
       
      h1 {
      padding:0;
      margin-bottom: 0px;
      margin-top: 0px;
      line-height: 1;
        !important;

       
      h2 {
      padding:0;
      margin-bottom: 0px;
      margin-top: 0px;
      line-height: 1,2;
       !important;
        }
       
      h3 {
      padding:0;
      margin-bottom: 0px;
      margin-top: 0px;
      line-height: 1,2;
       !important;
        }
       
      However there still seems to be a lot of padding on the top and the bottom of my headings. See webpage and attached screenshot.

      Hello Danny and the rest of the brilliant people out here!
       
      I'm trying to figure out what I have been doing wrong here customizing the padding for this Menu on the top right? (See Image below).
       
      Saw this thread (http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/37419-margin-being-added-to-div-in-the-textbox/) and tried creating custom css class but didn't work.
       
      The demo site I'm working on link is: http://demojobboard.swiftitsolutionz.com/
       
      Please suggest.
       
      Regards,
