Before/after example

Two columns of data. The left column shows a list view with a taller amount of spacing between rows. The second shows a more tightened list view with shorter spacing between rows.


  • This feature automatically applies the class uw-list-tight to the unordered list (ul) or ordered list (ol) that you are creating. If your list does not look as expected, ensure that the class is properly added to the outermost ul or ol on your list by viewing the “Text” tab of the editor.

  • Please note that bulleted lists are not intended for headings (h1, h2, h3). This will only work for paragraph text (<p>)
