Global Customization Settings for List Block
First, we will check the settings to customize the list globally. So, let’s start without any delay
The Layouts settings in the list block provide you with three different options to choose from. Here’s an overview of each layout:
- Layout 1: This layout displays the bulleted list in a regular column-like view. Each list item is represented by a bullet point, followed by the corresponding text.
- Layout 2: With this layout, the text is showcased first, followed by the bulleted points. It also adopts a columned display, but the emphasis is on the text content. This layout can be helpful when highlighting the textual information before presenting the bullet points.
- Layout 3: In this layout, the bulleted icon is positioned at the top, and the text field appears below it in a column. This arrangement draws attention to the bullet point symbol while clearly associating it with the corresponding text. It offers a visually distinct presentation style.
Inline View: By enabling the “Inline” setting, the list block will be displayed in a row format instead of the default column format. This allows the bullet points and text to appear horizontally in a single line. You can apply this setting to any of the available layouts.
Vertical Alignment: This setting allows you to change the alignment of the bullet points within the list. You can choose between left, center, or right alignment, based on your preference and design requirements.
Space Between Items: With the “Space Between Items” slider, you can adjust the spacing between each point in the list. Increase or decrease the value to create a desired gap between two consecutive list items, enhancing the visual separation and readability.
Spacing Between Icons & Texts: This setting lets you control the space between the bullet point icons and the corresponding text. Use the slider to increase or decrease the gap, ensuring proper alignment and visual harmony between the icons and text content.
The “Icon/Image” setting in the list block provides various options to customize your bullet points. Let’s explore each option.
Selecting the “Icon” option allows adding icons from an extensive library. You can also adjust the size of the icons and their background size.
Advanced customization options include changing the color, hover color, icon background color, and hover icon background color. You can also select different types of borders and specify their width and color with border-radius.

Like the previous options, you can adjust the color, hover color, icon background color, and hover icon background color. Additionally, you can choose different types of borders and specify their width and color with a border-radius.
