CSS Not taking effect

Hi everyone.  

I've had such wonderful help from the members of this forum before.  I hope perhaps someone can help me understand what I'm doing wrong here.

I have a column in a row that I'm trying to a negative margin for.  I've added the following to the custom CSS section but the changes don't seem to be taking effect.i've attached images of the element name and the css console. 


div#yui_3_17_2_1_1588485567504_148.col.sqs-col-5.span-5 {

margin-left: -3vw !important;

Do I have a syntax error or something.  I do this kind of stuff with another CMS platform all day and I've never had issues with CSS taking effect.  I've only run into issues when trying to do things with Squarespace.  I'm just wondering how I'm missing something so frequently


Thanks for your help in understanding this

Hi Tuanphan...

Thank you for the kind follow up.  I tried to locate the Block and came up with this but its still not working.  


div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1588348969991_11263.col.sqs-block.image-block.sqs-block-image.sqs-text-ready { margin-left: -3vw !important;


I'm trying to move the image with the red short of to the edge of the page so that it looks like it's coming in from the size.  basically set a negative 3vw margin to the left of it
