How to customize the design

You can customize the appearance of the block in the Design tab. In the area at the top, you can see how the block looks after changing the settings.

You can adjust:

  • Icon.
  • Layout.
  • Text.


Here is how you can customize the icon appearance in the Icon tab:

  1. Style. Select the original image, or add an outline or background to it.
  2. Shape. Select a shape for the outline or background. It can be square with sharp or rounded corners, or it can be round.
  3. Size. Choose the size of the icons.
  4. Color. Open the menu and choose the icon color. You can choose one from the palette on the Palette tab (screenshot 2) or paste the color code on the Custom color tab (screenshot 3).


In the Layout section, you can customize the layout of icons and text:

  1. Cards placement. Choose the relative position of the images and texts.
  2. Number of cards in a row on PC. Choose the number of items in a row for viewing your page from a computer.
  3. Indent between cards. Set the distance between the block items.

Texts are automatically aligned in the same way as icons. So, if you align the icons to the left in the Cards placement, then the texts are aligned to the left. If the icons are on the right, then the texts are on the right.

However, if you align the icons to the center, then you can align the text both to the center and to the left. Automatically the texts are centered, if you want to align them to the left, disable the Center text feature.


Adjust the block texts:

  1. Headline. Set the font weight, text size, font, text color of the item titles.
  2. Text. Set text size, font, text color of the item descriptions.

After you adjust the design settings, tap Save changes.
