Spacer vs Flex Spacer

You may notice there is a basic element Spacer you can use.

The difference between them is basic Spacer adds some space only below the elements.

But if you use Flex column and want to push one element to the left and another to the right, the best choice is to use Flex Spacer as it adds horizontal/vertical space between the items to push them to different sides of the column.

Flex Spacer is mostly used for headers when you want to put the logo on the left and navigation on the right.
