Divider

Use the Divider content type to add a rule as a visual break between sections of content on the stage. You can specify the line color, thickness, and width of the divider, as well as control the alignment, margins and padding, and format of the container border. By default, the divider is a hairline rule that extends the full width of the container, with allowance for padding.

Default Divider in Container without Border

Although most divider containers are invisible, the following example displays the container with a red dashed border so you can see the relationship between the divider, its padding, and the container. You can adjust the padding at the top and bottom of the divider to control the spacing between elements.

To add a divider

  2. Use the red guideline for reference as you position the divider either before or after another content container on the stage.

    In the following example, the divider marks the beginning of a new section of text.
