Block toolbar

Each block has its own set of tools for customization. Here’s what you’ll find in the Separator block toolbar.

Transform to

The ‘Transform to’ button lets you change a Separator Block into other blocks like ‘Columns’ or ‘Group’. This feature allows you to seamlessly adjust your layout with a simple click, ensuring your content looks just the way you want.

Drag & Move

Use the six-dot icon to drag your block, or the up and down arrow buttons let you move a block one position higher or lower.


The ‘Alignment’ tool lets you adjust the width of your separator in the Separator Block. Simply click the icon, and a menu will appear with various options. You can set your separator to no alignment, max 1200px wide, full width, or center-aligned.

More Options

The More options menu represented by three vertical dots on the far right of the toolbar gives you more features such as the ability to duplicate, remove, or edit your block as HTML.
