Margin Properties

You can alter the white space around a paragraph by adjusting the margin and the padding. In terms of the CSS box model, modifying the margin properties adjusts the space outside the border area. For example, if you create a border or background color for a paragraph and you increase the size of the margins around the paragraph, the border remains the same distance from the text in the paragraph. However, the position of the paragraph changes because there is more white space between the modified paragraph and the other elements on the page. You can set margin properties for paragraphs, characters, tables, images, and pages from Style Designer.

If you select Auto, ePublisher automatically sets the margin value based on the settings already indicated in the project.
