Margins add space around an element so the element does not sit flat against the edges of the content regions. Depending on the type of spacing you wish to have on an element, there are several different margin options that can be applied to achieve your goal.
The most common spacing applied is a "Standard Margin" which evenly distributes space around the element. Margins can be applied to elements like text boxes and images. To edit margins, you must first be logged into CommonSpot.Switch to Edit Mode on the CommonSpot toolbar.
Notice how there are no margins and your text appears very close to the side of the page.
