Format Typography With A Colour Background With Limited Width

Go to solution Solved by Parker_SQSP,

Hello! I cannot share the site I am on but I can share a snippet of an issue I am having. I am trying to put a cool block background behind some text as a text style but it always goes full width. I don't want this to span the full width of the page. Putting a spacer on each side becomes problematic when scaling the page. Does anyone have any code?


What I used is below:

// Type Style Purple //
#block-b3b375abb1ec025926c0 {
  background: #c40aff;
  padding: .2rem, .2rem, .2rem, .2rem;
  max-width: 200px;
// Type Style Purple //

It's also not centered properly. Any help would be great!

Hi @SparkandPony!

I wanted to let you know that you can now add a background color to Text, Accordion, Summary, Quote, and Newsletter blocks directly in Squarespace. This may help you achieve the design that you were looking for. Here's some more information about that:
