Badge: You can use badges in blurb in two ways. With and without images. When the image is present the badge will change its orientation to focus on the image. This means the badge can be set at any position on the image. Also when not using the image in some cases the badge will change its position by focusing on the full box. The idea that only text can be used in the bag can be changed by using badges and badge icons at the same time. Turn on the Use badge icon switch and select the icon. That's it.
Content Position: You can change the order between titles, subtitles, dividers, descriptions, and buttons located inside the container/box. The default value is 1.
