Page Builder Column format

Whenever I use the page builder grid, the size of the widget I add is always 25% of what it should be. For example, if I add an image on a single column format using page builder, it shows up on my page as if there were 4 columns with the image taking the furthest left column only. I’ve tried deactivating my plugins with no luck.

    Please could you setup a demo page for us and send through a link so we can see this in action.

    I created the demo page http://www.thepassportlifestyle.com/demo-page. The top widget is an image that was supposed to cover 100% of the width (ie. 1 column). The bottom two widgets were supposed to each cover 50% of the width (i.e. 2 columns)

    The image is being rendered at 250 x 167. Is the image set to full size or thumbnail?
    Alternatively try inserting media with the Visual Editor widget. To get access to this widget, first install: http://wordpress.org/plugins/black-studio-tinymce-widget/.

    The bottom two widgets are covering as much area as they have content. The panels themselves are covering 50% each with margin.

    The image was set as full size. For the bottom two plugins, I guess they were bad examples but if I had a text widget that should cover 50% of the width, it would only take up 25% with the right half of the left column just staying blank. I’ll try and download the plugin and see if that helps

    I updated the plugin and added a picture to the top row (100%) and two widgets to the bottom row (each 50%). As you can see, the data is getting truncated into quarters and does not display like the Page Builder format says it should.

    I can’t immediately see the problem but we’re most likely looking at the theme and Page Builder conflicting. Try turning off Page Builder’s CSS and see if the result is different. You can do that under Settings > Page Builder – there is a checkbox there to de-activate Page Builder’s Inline CSS.

    I unchecked the inline CSS with no change. It seems the content won’t go past 25% of the width no matter what I change it to when I build the page.

    Try inserting this into a Custom CSS block if the theme settings have one or into a Custom CSS module like the one included with Jetpack:

    /* Widgets */
    #primary .widget {
    width: 100% !important;
