Set max line/paragraph width

Unread post by Suzette Seveny » Mon Feb 10, 2020 10:28 pm

I want to limit the maximum width of paragraph <p> elements in HTML output because the long line length makes reading more challenging than it needs to be.

I noticed that the <p> tags are governed by rules in the hmprojectstyles.css file.

I’ve read some KBs about creating your own CSS files and inserting them in the project, but I’d rather not if possible.

Please advise.

Hi Suzette,

There isn't a practical way to do this at the moment and I also really wouldn't recommend it. You could set something like this up in your skin but it would interfere with the layout and formatting, and anyone having trouble with the line width on a desktop browser will simply make the browser window narrower. :)
