I am running into an issue where I have content separated by two columns. It looks good on desktop view!2021-12-20_13-15-53.thumb.png.bf696796e600ae1cab29ff8c4cafe199.png

However, when I go to check it out in Mobile preview (or on my own mobile device, the numbers rearrange once they go to a single column view.

I have each section laid out using individual spacers under each numbered area.

Any ideas on what is causing the rearrange as well as how I can fix it?

This is because you currently have two columns:

What you really want is rows, each containing two columns:

You can do this by dragging the blocks around. Don't worry - it gets easier with practice! 🙂

If you add some Line Blocks to the top of your page (that span the entire width) you can use these as guides. Drag your Markdown Blocks in between the lines, one at a time so that you have one row of two blocks. Then add another line, and do the same again. 

When they are aligned correctly, you can remove the Line Blocks.
