Line breaks on phone vs desktop

Line breaks are displayed one way on the desktop version and look quite ugly when translated to phone display. We design in desktop mode and often use line breaks for design purposes. But when you view the same campaign on a phone, the line breaks aren't read the same way, often putting single words on one line all by itself. There definitely needs to be a separate way to handle the mobile version.

Re: Line breaks on phone vs desktop

Hi @MattL842,


We're sorry the mobile display of your email campaign isn't displaying line breaks the same way as it does within the desktop display, and we're here to help! Keep in mind that mobile-responsive templates use technology to adapt and format your email’s layout, based on the size of the screen it’s being displayed on. This means that the spacing (including added line breaks) can display differently. In addition, different email clients and devices have different ways of displaying email content too. A best practice is to design your email to look great on both desktop and mobile! Please click here for a helpful reference. And don't forget you'll always want to preview and send yourself a test of your email before sending it to your contacts.
