Desktop Breakpoint on/ off?

Hi and good day,

For Margins stack there’s probably a video somewhere?

In Foundry we can set the margins for an object/ area in RW, but how does “Desktop Breakpoint” on/ off come into this consideration?

If I set the margins for desktop should “Desktop Breakpoint” be on or off? Of course, the desktop will have another breakpoint than the tablet or phone!?


with best regards, Omar KN

Have you looked at the Foundry Documentation pages?

They contain a wealth of information, including documentation about the Margins stack.

The Margins stack documentation page, like a majority of the documentation pages, also includes a tutorial video.

I’ve also recently put up a post here on the forum with some quick links to various documentation pages for Foundry, Alloy and much more:

alright, let’s see what I find.


How’d it go? Find what you needed?

Well, it’s really simple, but best to understand it with the video.

My notes - if it may be useful for newcomers :slight_smile:

Working with Margins in RW Foundry

  1. leave Mobile Breakpoint checked (for most cases)
  2. set Detailed Mobile Margin(/ Padding), ( f ex 20px)

If no breakpoint is set for the other devices (or: If nothing is enabled for tablet or desktop,) the margin settings from Mobile Breakpoint will carry over to those.

  1. check in Preview, and (if on desktop) reduce/ increase the width of the project.

… together with a Page Header stack.

There is much more to accomplish with Margins stack.
