The most popular WordPress drag and drop page builder plugin is Visual Composer, see now what to do when you want to edit r change the Visual Composer Spacing Rows and Columns. All the Visualmodo WordPress themes include this premium plugin.

By default, the Visualmodo WordPress theme adds a 35px margin below all columns in the Visual Composer.

This allows for a better responsive site but it’s also very important to consider it when building your site so you can create perfect spacing between your elements. This margin can be altered through the Visual Composer panel > design Options area.

Removing The Default Visual Composer Spacing – Consequences

If you enter 0px for the bottom column margin globally it will remove it everywhere. However, you will have to remember to add margins to your columns for responsive layouts. So, where they turn from columns next to each other to stacked columns. Also, it will be a lot harder for you to keep consistency throughout the site.

Better Way Of Resetting The Margin

The best way to reset your margins is to do so via the Visual Composer. “column” settings when editing a column. For example, if working on a row with a background and you want content in the middle. In one column and you want to add padding to your row that is the same at the top and bottom.

Rather than adding a 40px padding at the top of your Visual composer row or column and allowing the column to have a 40px bottom margin. So, to give the impression of padding, it’s best to edit your column and remove the bottom margin, then you can apply a top and bottom padding directly to the row. In fact, this is what I do often on my live demos.

In most situations you shouldn’t have to remove the bottom margin on columns, just remember it’s there and work smartly. The only cases where you would want to remove it is when adding rows with backgrounds for example and you want smaller padding inside the row. In addition, remember the limits of your page content and design

Remove Margin Via Row Column Spacing Setting

If you are using a row without any inner columns you can also remove this spacing by easily selecting 0px for your columns margin via the built-in setting and setting it to 0px:
