    Simple question that I'm sure someone can help with. I've inserted an image, right-clicked on it and set its alignment. The text now wraps but it's bumps agains the image. How do I set image padding? I don't see where that's setting can be made in image properties. Please see attached screen shot and confirm this is how my Sitefinity 5.0.2800.0 image properties interface should look.

    Hey Spelman,

    Unfortunately this functionality was removed from Sitefinity somewhere between version 4.3 and 5.0. Reason probably is that setting margins and padding should be done globally for consistent design. I agree with that, but in my opinion it should be possible to override these settings.

    Anyway, you can use some workarounds for this:

    @all

    Don't forget to vote for it http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/sitefinity/9375 if you have not yet. Don't think it makes any difference how many vote but it might be a leverage at some point :-)

    Thanks Mark. The workarounds are a bit involved. Last time we modified the style sheet, we somehow created a 2nd iteration of the style sheet and the template automatically linked that 2nd iteration. We're hesitant to go in that deep and don't want to require layperson to have to manipulate HTML either. Per Kurt's suggestion, we'll add a vote to have this feature return to the next release of Sitefinity 5x.

    Thanks for your responses.
