    I guess it’s a beginners question, but to me the difference between padding and margin is not clear. It seems to do the same in my layout. Can you explain to me what the difference is, and when to choose either one?

    Hey @loekarin

    No problem its easily mixed up.

    Padding and margin are CSS concepts – margin, is the space around the element, and padding is the space inside the element.

    Try setting a background color, and then playing with both options 🙂

    Let me know if that makes sense? (I should probably add this to the docs)

    Thanks, that makes sense.
    Yes, please add this to the documentation.
    Especially for beginners, terms need clarification. Same goes for ‘radius’ (I already found out that means: making round corners)

    Hey @loekarin

    I’ve just added those to this page:
    https://customlayouts.com/documentation/template-elements/

    I’ll close this for now, but I’m putting on our todo list info tooltips – so you can see a better explanation of what everything does from within the plugin itself.
