Sections are in the core of adding content to your online store. In this article we will cover common settings for all sections. In each sections you can control the content, style and layout of the section.
Settings vary between the sections as different sections have different content.
Content like heading, text elements and images are commonly managed as blocks in sections. In some cases the content is on the sections level. Some section might have some content on both locations.

Style related settings are listed commonly after the content settings. Most of the section give you the option to select between the main and accent color schemes.
Layout settings are commonly found on the section level and are divided under own subheadings: Desktop layout or Mobile layout. This way you can control each viewport size with ease. In some rare cases there are some settings for Tablet viewports as well.

Margins help you to control the space between each individual section. Each section has dedicated margin controls for top and bottom margins. Margins can be individually controlled for desktop and mobile layouts since the layout might change dramatically.
