  1. How do I add CSS to a specific element?
    All I want to do is add padding to the block of text in an image box.
    I highlight the paragraph then
    in the “Advanced > Additional CSS input field I entered:
    style=”padding-left: 6px; padding-right: 6px;”
    but this did not work so I tried
    padding-left: 6px; padding-right:6px
    and this did not work.
    What am I doing wrong please.

    • Hi Arnolfo,

      I think your CSS may bit a bit off. You need to use the CSS selector for whatever element you are applying changes to. For instance if you wish to change the padding for your header you would use something like this `.site-header {
      padding-left: 6px; padding-right: 6px;}`. You seem to have the correct syntax you just need to inspect the page and find the correct selector for your element.

      • Ah, I see. Thanks. In Elementor each element has a css menu which by default add css to the element you are in. So I need to actually look up the element and add to that which is a bit scary as making a change to that would effect all other instances, yes?

        • Well you’d just need to inspect the web page to make sure you are editing the correct CSS Selector. We can help you with that if you don’t mind starting a new Support Forum thread. If you decide to do so please include the link to your website in the thread. Thank you!

    • Hi Sundar!

      One of my favorite places to get CSS samples from in W3 Schools and I hope that some of the samples on their CSS Examples page gives you the information you are looking for.
