Method #1: Understand Instagram’s whitespace rules

The Instagram app requires special formatting to interpret whitespaces correctly. For instance, assume you type a sentence and end it with a period. To add a line break, you have to hit Enter or the Return key immediately.

Instead, if you place a space before the line break in your caption, Instagram will ignore the line break. If you still want that space before your next paragraph, you must add it after the line break.

Symbols as line breaks

Additionally, some people use symbols like a period, dash, or even emojis as spaces between paragraphs. However, this may not be ideal for a lot of people, as the symbols are visible. Yet, it is a straightforward way for line spacing.

Method #2: Avoid the Instagram app altogether

It is even better to type your caption on your Notes app and copy it to the clipboard. Then, paste it into the Instagram app. While this may seem bizarre, it allows Instagram to properly format spaces in captions.

Use scheduling apps

Another way to properly insert line break in captions is to publish Instagram posts through social media schedulers. You can use Facebook Business or other Instagram scheduling tools, such as Later, Tailwind, Buffer, or Hootsuite.

In this case, you just type your text just like you usually would in a text editor. The scheduling app will automatically put spaces and line breaks in your Instagram captions. Exactly where you instructed it to.

Use online spacer tools.

Believe it or not, there are special online Instagram spacing tools. Adding spaces and line breaks to your captions with such tools will be trivial.
