For instance, this block has separated columns, with a clear orange line in the middle.
To create this separated column you will click on the Design button find within each block within the visual editor. Select the separated column style using the drop down menu displayed just below the Design button. Save the changes.
If you have a column of text and a column containing an image, the principle is the same. You select separated column from the Style options of your block.
