I've been actively working with Retool for more than 5 months now. It's a big platform with lots of use cases, so naturally there are all kinds of features one could ask for.
However, no matter the project, there's one thing that always comes up: the ability to remove paddings from containers (that includes: forms, normal and tabbed containers).
This is something that I always have to fight with and spend time trying to figure out how to avoid making the UI look too boxy and nested. I've tried every possible custom CSS I could think of, but it always leads to other problems. I've heard this complaint from other developers as well and also seen people asking about it here in the forum.
Being able to group components is something fundamental. This need arises naturally in every real-world app. This is what the container component is for. But the problem is that almost always you want to nest one group inside another without introducing additional padding.
I'm sure every person working with Retool will be happy if containers could have zero padding. I'm not talking about custom padding. Only a switch that will let us choose to remove the padding.
Retool team, please, don't let this get buried with all the other feature requests. I know everyone considers their problems the most important, but this one is something all of us will benefit from.
