First off, lets set up a page so you can see what minimum height does: 1. In a publication, create a new project
2. Once in that new project, add a box element to the default page
3. Then add a text box element and place it inside the box element
4. Add text to the text box element (there might be space at the bottom of the text box depending on how much text you put into the text box). It should look like this:
5. Now drag the slider of the text box up past the text. This action is setting the minimum height of the text box to be at the bottom of the text.
6. You will notice that the containing box has shrunk. This is because the system is compensating for the additional space the text box was taking up prior to setting the minimum height.
Generally you will want to set the minimum height of a box to a value less than the actual height of the box. Reasons being that if you recycle this layout to use on another page, you don't need to worry about empty space, as shown in the image beneath #4.
When working with elements in the editor, you might notice that they can sometimes appear larger than expected. This is because of a setting that works behind the scenes called minimum height. It helps maintain the distance from the edge of an element to the text, other elements, pictures, etc. This article is to help make more sense of what is going on behind the scenes and help make the editor easier to use.
