Use the Divider content type to add a rule as a visual break between sections of content in the Page Builder stage. You can specify the line color, thickness, and width of the divider. You can also control the alignment, set the margins and padding, and format of the container border. By default, the divider is a hairline rule that extends the full width of the container, with allowance for padding.
Although most divider containers are invisible, the following example displays the container with a red dashed border so you can see the relationship between the divider, the padding, and the container. You can adjust the padding at the top and bottom of the divider to control the spacing between elements.

Hidden elements are stored in the database and invisible to customers. However, these elements are visible to search engines and other bots that crawl your site. They are also returned as part of the content if requested through an API call with an attribute of invisibility, unless you remove them from the stage.
In the Page Builder panel, expand Elements and drag a Divider placeholder to a row, column, or tab set on the stage.
Use the red guideline for reference as you position the divider either before or after another content container on the stage.
