You may be aware that you can setup Template themes for designing and making sure your documents look great and fit your brand, but did you know you can customize individual blocks too?
In this post, we’ll be going over just some of the customization options within various blocks:
By clicking the Text block, at the top of the block you’ll see the options, click the Properties icon. On the right you’ll see options for Background, Advanced Formatting, Restrict Editing, and Actions.
Changing Background Colors
You can change the background color of a block to closer match your branding or just bring in some added design and style to your templates. To access: Properties > Background color, you can then pick a color or add in specific HEX color of your branding.
Changing Padding allows the text within the block to be be moved or appear further away from the borders of the block.
Since the background is now a gray, let's first change the font color for this block: Select all the text and at the top tool bar click the A to pick a new color:
Now, we can change the Padding: Properties > Advanced Formatting and give the padding a positive number.
Within an image block you can also change the padding and background color, this is perfect for creating frames or for creating a look of a continuous piece of content
Click the block: Properties > Advanced formatting > Padding. Then change the padding to the desired amount, you will notice the image seems to have gotten smaller. Now, change the background image
Continuous Piece Example
This one is a little trickier. For this we would have two blocks side-by-side and involves the use of changing the background color, padding, and margins. The only added step is changing the margins to move the blocks closer together. For the example below I have a text block and an image block side-by-side.
You can do the same background color, padding and margins trick within Video Blocks too!
