Hello!
I am new to this forum and relatively new to responsive design. I’m trying to send out a rather simple email but my text keeps reflowing improperly in Outlook. Attached is my code. I really want the call to action to stay on one line. Any help would be appreciated !

Hi doitbestcorp,

Welcome to the Email on Acid forums.

I would be happy to help with this. You don’t seem to have attached your code, please could you attach it as a .HTML file and I will take a look at what we can do.

Cheers,
Alex

Hey doitbestcorp,

Thank you for the code!

Looking at this, I presume you want the text “Don’t miss out on your opportunity to SAVE!” to all stay on one line?

If that’s the case, simply dropping the font size of the h1 by adding:

style="font-size:26px;" 

to the H1 should keep it on one line in Outlook.

Let me know how you get on!

Cheers,
Alex
