How To Use The Separator Element

The Separator Element allows you to add styled or invisible separators anywhere in your content. To start, add the element into your desired column.

The first thing to choose is the Separator Style. The element comes with 7 preset styles plus a No Style option for invisible separators.

The Design tab is your next stop. Depending on the style chosen, you will have more or less to do here. If you have chosen the No Style option, all you need to do is to determine the spacing for the element. This is achieved via the second option, the Margin. You can specify your spacing in px, em, or %. You can adjust the margins above and below the separator, but this is not important with an invisible one. This is best used to increase the separation between elements. It is also possible to use negative values with this element.

If you have chosen a styled element, the remaining options are to style this, with regard to its color, icon, size, width, and alignment. A huge variety of separators are possible.

Read below for a detailed description of all element options.

Element Options

Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element at Options > Avada Builder Elements > Separator. Also, please note that the displayed option screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
