How To Use The Separator Element

The Separator Element allows you to add styled or invisible separators anywhere in your content.

Step 1. Ensure Avada Builder, or Avada Live is active.

Step 2. Create, or choose the Column you wish to add the Element into. Click on Add New Element.

Step 3. Choose Separator from the Elements List.

Step 4. The first thing to choose is the Separator Style. The element comes with 7 preset styles plus a No Style option for invisible separators. Be sure to check out the Separator Element Demo page to see all the options.

Step 5. 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.

Step 6. If you have chosen a styled element, the remaining options are to style this, with regards to its color, icon, size, width and alignment. A huge variety of separators are possible.

Step 7. Once you have completed styling your Separator Element, click Save.
