Your last upgrade removed the ability to seperately control the margins on text boxs, & replaced it with an option for equal padding only.

This is a terrible terrible loss !, I will never be able to upgrade or finish my websites without the ability to edit margins individually as was previously available under the "Properties" tab.
Equal padding is absolutly No use!

I am very very upset, all my hundreds and hundreds of hours work wasted and my online business gone !
I truely feel you have cheapened yola by removing the ability to edit the 4 margins.

PLEASE PLEASE Re install the ability to edit the 4 margins as was available through the "Properties" tab.

It is very unfair what you have done, as they will be others who have invested in your website who will need to be able to accurately set margins on all 4 sides, as was previously available.

How will anyone replicate what they have done previously?

PLEASE PLEASE Re install the ability to edit the 4 margins as was available through the "Properties" tab.

I understand everyone's concern. Again, just to add some background as to where this came from, when we changed our widget interaction a while back, part of our goal was to bring the editing capability closer to the widget, hence making them more discoverable for our users. When we did so with our text widget, we also changed it to a sliding bar for the margins, thinking it would make things easier.

In the meantime, know that we are looking into what can be done as quickly as possible.

Hi All

This just in! You heard it here first! I have fabulous news for everyone on this thread. Some really excellent work was done on this problem in record time and we now have the ability to set equal padding around widgets AND control each margin individually. You will see this on the Widget title bar. Click on "Margin" and the Edit Margin dialog will open and you can do as you please with your widget!

So Yola proudly brings you the best of both worlds.

I would really like to thank Amr (Product) and Pete (Engineering) for their super fast work on this. But most importantly I want to thank everyone who posted their feedback on this thread, both positive and negative. Both are equally valuable and help us make our product better.

Take the new margin controls for a spin and tell us what you think!
