My apologies if you were offended. But I did already know about the impact of adding padding. And I asked you a question to clarify your reply, which you have not answered yet. I do thank you for your comment though. That’s far more than anyone else in the forum did for me, so I do appreciate your time. But I must reiterate the question in my previous post.
I don’t understand why adding endless amounts padding is a solution here. Shouldn’t the Bloc’s height automatically elongate vertically as its content expands vertically? And shouldn’t padding be something EXTRA I can add on top of the Blocs height and width?
(I am not criticizing your suggestion but rather putting forth a question to learn more.)
In other words…
Let’s say I have an empty Bloc with no content and no padding or margin. It should be zero pixels hight, right? And then let’s say I add content inside that Bloc which is 100px high. Shouldn’t that 100px-high content automatically expand the height of the Bloc to at least 100px even without my needing to add any padding or margin? Perhaps I am mistaken, but I thought that’s the way it should work in Blocs. And if it is the case, then adding padding to solve this problem is only a bandage. Wouldn’t you agree?
Please understand that I post things in this forum to see if what I am finding is a bug or just the way things work in Blocs. If after conversing with veteran Blocs users I find the behavior to be a bug, then naturally I will promptly report it to @Norm.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts in light of this.
