# Spacings

 Spacingsis an option to Grid and related constructs which specifies the spacings to leave between successive objects.
• A setting of the form Scaled[s] gives spacing that is a fraction s of the size of an item.
• A setting of the form Spacings->v specifies that the absolute space between items should be v, independent of the presence of frames or dividers. A setting of the form Offset[v] inserts space v beyond space taken by frames or dividers.
• Settings for Spacings in Grid and related constructs can be given as:
 {specx,specy} use the speci at successive x and y positions
• For a grid with n items in a particular direction, Spacings can specify settings for spacings in the n+1 gaps between items, starting before the first item, and ending after the last item.
• The outer edge of the grid is taken to be at the midpoint of the outermost spacing on every side.
• The speci in each direction can have the following forms:
 {s1,s2,...,sn} use s1 through sn; then use defaults {{c}} use c in all cases {{c1,c2}} alternate between c1 and c2 {{c1,c2,...}} cycle through all ci {s,{c}} use s, then repeatedly use c {s1,{c},sn} use s1, then repeatedly use c, but use sn at the end {s1,s2,...,{c1, c2, ... }, sm, ... , sn} use the first sequence of si at the beginning, then cyclically use the ci, then use the last sequence of si at the end {s1,s2,...,{},sm,...,sn} use the first sequence of si at the beginning and the last sequence at the end {i1->v1,i2->v2,...} specify what to use at positions ik {spec,rules} use rules to override specifications in spec
