Disable auto spacing on mobile devices

Auto spacing on mobile devices is enabled by default in Beaver Builder. In general, it reduces the amount of space between rows, columns, and modules on mobile devices automatically, to save you time adding your own values. See the article on troubleshooting margins and padding to see how auto spacing works under various conditions.

If you want fine-grained control over spacing in your layouts, you may prefer to disable auto spacing.


As an alternative to disabling auto spacing, you can set explicit custom default or individual margin and padding values for small (mobile) devices. See the article on changing individual margins and padding.

To disable mobile auto spacing site-wide:

  1. Open any page for editing in Beaver Builder.

  2. Open Global Settings by clicking the title bar in the upper left corner to expose the Tools menu, then click Global settings, or just use the keyboard shortcut:

    • โŒ˜ + U ( Mac)
    • Ctrl + U ( Windows).
  3. Go to the Responsive layout section and change Enable auto spacing to No.
