Configuring Each Tab Separately

Each tab has a pencil icon to show the options related to the tab. Options included for each individual tab are as follows:

Style Sets the style of the tab shown on the website. Available options are: Default and Simple.
Orientation Sets the orientation of the tabs shortcode presentation. This option works only for the Default style. Available options are: Horizontal and Vertical.
Container Background Color Sets the container background color of the shortcode which contains the main content for each tab.
