Is anyone else experience some odd, buggy behavior with the advanced layout builder? I’m having to use it because I have a Layerslider on my home page, which as we know from past forums the shortcode for which does not work in the Default Editor.
Specifically I’m working with some 1/3 column Text Blocks on the page. I’m adding simple stuff – a small image, a title, and some text – all centered.
But the editor is adding paragraph styles to my images, there’s some weird padding going on with the images, the editor doesn’t always show the changes I’ve made (for instance, the image is actually centered on the live page but not in the editor). When I start messing around with the Header styles, they don’t always match even though they are the same header style (I’ve had to go into the text editor and remove extra coding that seems to conflict every time I make an edit to these text boxes).
I suppose my question is: Is it supposed to be this buggy? and how do I gain more control over the spacing/padding around elements like headers and images?
Lastly – on a different topic – can I remove the bread crumbs completely from the upper righthand column? (eg Home / Volunteer).

Generally no, it isn’t supposed to be buggy.
Working with it is a bit different than with the regular visual editor however so it takes a bit to get used to doing layouts with all of the elements instead of just with the text item.
Eg, if you are trying to do a layout with images and text its better to use the columns with text elements and image element instead of dropping the images into the text editor.
For the spacing on items, the special headers have customizable padding but most other items are set via css theme wide.
You can add this to your functions.php to give every element its own class field so you can easily add custom classes which tends to be where you can start getting deep customization:

Thanks Devin, I’ll give that a shot!
Any thoughts on removing the breadcrumbs? I don’t want to remove the entire header area with the page title and the breadcrumbs, just the breadcrumbs.

Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:
