How do I create vertical space between objects without also making boxes narrower?

Sometimes I want to create vertical space between boxes--particularly images and text--because everything can look busy, especially with a lot of images. I try to mess with the margins or padding, but they both seem to also change the width of the images or text.

I've also tried just inserting empty text boxes in between things, but when it's sent, those empty spaces are compressed. 

Is there a way to space things out vertically? Thanks!

Have you tried adjust the padding on your objects, only on the top and bottom?

Yeah, that'd be solution, but when I do it also makes the objects wider or narrower. Is there a way to only add padding at the top and/or bottom?

Yes there is, there are two places you can do this.

1. When you add an image block, before you insert the image there is a gear icon you can click to adjust the sides of the padding.  Default is set to 10 all around.









2. In addition to that you can also adjust the padding once the image has been placed.

Hover over the image blcok and select the gear icon.

If you click the Gear or advanced tab. You'll get options to set all 4 dimensions of margin/padding. Let me know if you need a visual reference to find it.

(HAHA, nice Brandi. As I was typing :p )

yea....I've been working on getting screenshots too of that, but having issues inserting them into my post. :(

The gear icon at the bottom left, click that and you can change the sides individually.
