Section Settings & Content Settings

The contentbox editor differs from the Drag-drop editor in that they both have a content Area to add and remove snippet blocks, but the Contentbox also has an outer section area, that can have background images applied and a height set.

Content sits within the section and can be repositioned and resized.

You can stack multiple sections with their own content areas on top of each other.

Section Area

Affect the outer container, height, background, padding etc

Content Area

Affect the inner content where the snippet blocks are added - content width, background colour, alignment etc.
