Spacing messed up in Squarespace 7.1

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am experiencing problems with the spacing on my website. On the display, which is much larger screen size than my laptop, the spacing on my page becomes increased and uneven. Is there a way I can turn off the responsiveness for desktop? The screenshot with lots of extra padding is from my monitor display.856425217_Screenshot2023-01-04at10_46_14PM.thumb.png.9a21a9fec5c84a43ee59ebe563777e09.png1557579786_Screenshot2023-01-04at10_43_49PM.thumb.png.f16a25ac228db4321fe54e0aef460cd2.png

Can you share your website URL and site wide password?

What do you have the page width set to? What about the font size?

The narrowness of the content comes from a reasonably wide canvas, and text that takes up just half of the 24 columns, that means that text is no bigger than 50% of the width (until it switches to mobile at 750px).

I would suggest that you reduce the main width and then expand the width of all of the blocks and especially those that are getting too narrow. That shouldn't impact the overall look on wide screens, but improve it on mid-sized screens.

The font size should scale down as you shrink the page, I think that the two screenshots side-by-side are slightly misleading. In testing scaling the width the fonts only get smaller, but of course not enough to guarantee that the text stays on just two lines.

it should scale down as the window gets smaller but it doesn't for me either, particularly with big headings, maximizing the window without a doubt makes the text smaller. plz lmk if there's a site wide fix for this, i know this is an old post

right side of image is the maximized window
