Margins

By default Paragraph component has a margin bottom of spacingM (1rem). You can override the default margin bottom by specifying it explicitly on the component level by marginBottom="none" or any other value from our spacing options

Truncated text

Sometimes you might have to truncate the text in the Paragraph component, so we provide the prop especially for that. Under the hood, what it does is add overflow: hidden and set text-overflow to ellipsis. Have a look at the example below:
