Working with borders



  • Vadim

    Hi Massimo, we have a bug with borders, is this a good place to report it?

    On a multi-column layout (2-4 columns) when setting Borders on the different columns they end up being different heights because the inner-content of each "box" is different.

    Would it be possible to either

    1) Make it so that border on "column 1" and "column 2" are same height
    2) Have a separate "structure border" setting?

    Our use case is that we want to have a single nice border around the whole email, but email is made up of 1- and 2-column structures. So the TOP structure gets a LEFT, TOP, RIGHT border, the BOTTOM structure gets a LEFT, BOTTOM, MIDDLE border, and all middle structures only get LEFT and RIGHT borders. and this works great if they are All 1-column structures. This all breaks down when it's a multi-column structure.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you!

    Hi Vadimb, thank you for the kind words about the editor. We see what you mean. We'll discuss it internally and see what we can do. Thanks again for your feedback.

    Hey @Massimo, can you please update how we can resolve this multicolumn border issue?
    While using multi-columns row, if the content of sibling columns differs from each other then the borders around the columns do not match the height of parent row. This results in different borders around different columns in a single row.

    Hi Raviraj, thanks for reaching out. Borders in a multi-column row will only extend as far as the content entered in each column. which can cause border alignment issues when the columns have different lengths. To prevent this issue, we recommend using content that is all the same size in multi-column rows (i.e. all images have the same dimensions). With that being said, I'm happy to pass along your feedback about this to our Product team for consideration as well!

    Hi, are there any developments on this front? Same-sized content in a row is not always possible, and columns stacking on mobile is a further problem. (I have the same use case as Vadim above)

    I have a row with background colour and an image in the middle. I want a border underneath the entire row, not just the image block. None of the options available offer this. I don't want to mess around with css as the whole point of using an editor is to have this capability within it. Am i doing something wrong or is this indeed a limitation and if so you might want to modify your article to be more explicit. Thx

    Hi Ian, 

    I tried recreating your design type below with a row with a background color, an image in the middle, and a border at the bottom of the row. If this scenario is not what you were looking for, could you please share some more details or a screenshot of what you're trying to achieve?

    It's possible to insert a border on only the bottom part of a row - first, select the row and then scroll to the bottom of the side panel to the right to locate the "Border" section. Click the "More options" toggle to see the various options for adding your border (left, right, top, bottom).

    Please let me know if I misunderstood your request or if you have any further questions about this - thanks!
