Create a Row

The “Row” is the main WPBakery Page Builder container structure.

Each rows can be displayed differently: you can choose a background, a main Skin Tone – Light: dark font for light background or Dark: light font for dark background -, and the column layout you want to use.

Depending on the settings you choose, the design of the theme (row padding, margin etc..) will adapt automatically.

But if you wan to polish the row design even more, you can use the “Custom” tab to add your own padding and margin settings and even add your own custom CSS.

Note: Margin and padding adjustment are widely used in theme.
