Is it a bug? | Margins & Paddings

Dear Support Team,

After entering a value for either Top, Bottom (e.g. 30), Left, or Right and updating and publishing it, I went back and saw that all the values had changed at the same time and became 30, 30, 30, 30. Is this a default, bug, or something else I am not doing correctly?

Best regards,
Max Lim

    Hi Max

    Thanks for posting your question.

    Padding and Margin multi-measurement fields auto-complete. If you enter 30 for the top value and click anywhere else, you’ll see the remaining three fields populate. If you enter a single value and close the row, it’s possible to miss the auto-population. If you have a moment, please enter 0 for the remaining values and you should be good to go.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Andrew,

    Is there any setting to enable/disable this auto-populate feature?
    Did not see this auto-population, please send a screenshot here.
    Thanks.

    Hi Max

    Auto-population is the behavior you described; if you enter 30 in the first Padding field and click away, 30 will be populated in the three remaining fields. Unfortunately, a setting to disable this behavior doesn’t yet exist. I’ll log your request shortly; thanks for your feedback.

    Hi Andrew,

    I see then right missed out on all this auto-population for any amendments.
    Till I went to do a live preview and discovered it.
    Note on the request to log this feature, if possible for free version.
    Thanks for clarifying.

    Best regards,
    Max

    Hi Max

    I’m sorry to hear about the hassle. I don’t recall this being raised in the past, which is why it hasn’t been addressed, but I can see how you could miss the population. Put another way, once you enter a value, the form requires a value in all fields; either a positive value or 0 or a negative value is ok in the case of margin.

    All the best with your site, and sorry again for the hassle.

    Cheers, Andrew
