Simply put, margins help bring blocks either closer together or further apart. They can move blocks up and down and left and right. Below we’ll go over some examples of how and why you would use margins.
- A negative margin can bring blocks up the page, or towards the right or left on the page
- Positive margins push content down the page, further apart from other blocks, or away from the right or left of the page.
Margin's and spacing in PandaDoc
Sometimes there is a lot of room between blocks that might cause the contents of the page to spill over onto a new page. Margins can help with this.
In the below GIF you'll notice on the bottom left that the page is too long and is showing where the page break is. But, if we select each block on this page and then give the top margin a negative number we can move the block up on the page.
With these changes to the Margins of all blocks on this page you can see that all content now fits nicely and the page breaks correctly
You can also use Margins so that different sized blocks appear more evenly spaced. In the example below after adding the frame to the image block, the text block no longer looks centered, but by changing the top margin of the text block to a positive number this 'pushes' the block down the page.
There are times when you may want to bring blocks that are side-by-side closer or further apart from one another
And lastly, sometimes you want a block to stretch the entire page. For this you would use -50 on both the right and left margins.
