Eric Bynum from WRI Technical Support informed me that: DigitBlock is not intended to affect the padding. If you want spaces in the number padding you can include them in the value of the NumberPadding option. For example, Table[PaddedForm[BaseForm[i, 2], 8, NumberPadding -> {"0000 ", ""}, NumberSigns -> {"", ""}, DigitBlock -> 4, NumberSeparator -> " "], {i, 127}] // TableForm I still don't see why DigitBlock is not applied to the padding.
