How do I add padding to text blocks?

Please tell me how to add left and right padding to text blocks. If not padding, then left/right margins would work. I need to get the type moved in a bit. Is this possible?

 

Also, looking through old community content, your team suggested adding the padding via the HTML button. But I do not see the button. Looking through MORE posts, I found one that said the HTML button has been removed. 

 

We'd really like this back. There are multiple reasons to use it. I'm at a loss here.

 

Thanks.

Thank you for reaching out about adding padding to the sides of your text. While you are not able to add left and right padding around your text, I am more than happy to pass along your feedback to our engineers so that they can notify you when/if that functionality is added!

That's very disappointing. Is there any way to resize a text box perhaps?

 

I saw you used to be able to edit HTML (which I am versed in). Please bring that back. I must say, you are one of the only extremely popular services that does NOT allow a user to edit HTML. 

 

Also, thank you for your quick reply!

 

 

Hello @AnneM56 ,

 

If you're well-versed in HTML, you may wish to use the custom code editor, as it will allow more control over certain elements of your email builds.
