You ever heard of invisible character? If you still haven't, it's because you've never researched how to solve the problem of skipping lines in the Instagram caption.

If you promote a business on social media, especially on Instagram, in addition to a good image or video and making a more attractive caption, you also need to be concerned with the formatting of the text.



After all, understanding the message is part of a good user experience.

But I'm sure that once you wrote that perfect text and with all the formatting, but when you published Instagram, you put it all in one paragraph, didn't you?

This is because Instagram was created for people to post photos and videos with short, objective text in the captions.


With the growth and popularization of Instagram in recent years, the texts of the subtitles became larger and full of information, the famous “textões”.

Because simply skipping the line didn't work (as we do with texts like the one you're reading), many people started using the Instagram invisible character.

But you want to know what this invisible character is anyway? That's what we're going to tell you throughout this article. And even more: we will teach you several quick and easy ways to skip a line on Instagram.

WHAT IS INVISIBLE CHARACTER?

Everything you type on the internet is a character or a set of characters, which are made up of codes. So basically each character is a code.

The space created between words and lines is empty codes, but there are also invisible characters that take up space. This is because they are invisible to you and me, but the system reads them differently.

The invisible character is a standard braille code, which is recognized by the screen reader. Therefore, be careful when using the feature, as excessive use of it hinders people with visual needs.

HOW TO USE INVISIBLE CHARACTER ON INSTAGRAM?

In both the caption and Instagram Bio, we recommend copying the invisible character and pasting it somewhere easier to access on mobile. It can be the notepad or that WhatsApp group of your own.

THE LEGEND:

It's very easy to use the invisible character in your caption, it's practically just copy and paste, also known as “ctrl+c + ctrl+ v”.

Step 1. Copy only the space we leave between the slashes below:

|⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀|


Step 2. Write your caption text and skip the line as usual. In that space left between the lines, paste the invisible character you copied from step 1.

NA BIO:

Unlike the caption, where you have 2200 characters to write, in the Instagram Bio there are only 150. So, remember that when skipping a line, it will be counted as a character.

Step 1. Copy only the space we leave between the slashes below:

|⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀|

Step 2. Write the sentence you will put in Bio and skip the line. In that space that was between the lines, paste the invisible character that you copied from the previous step.



HOW TO SKIP LINE ON INSTAGRAM?

Initially, Instagram didn't allow line breaks in your caption text because, as we've already mentioned, the purpose was for them to be simple and short.


But recently Instagram has included the possibility for you to skip a line simply by using the Enter from your keyboard. Turns out it's not as simple as on other social networks. There are rules for it to work.

To skip a line on Instagram just using the Enter key, you not he can:

  • Use space before or after skipping the line;
  • Use any emoji at the beginning of the paragraph that follows the skipped line.

If you do any of these things, Enter won't work to skip the caption line or Instagram Bio phrase. In these cases, using invisible space may be the best option.

APPS AND SITES TO SKIP LINE ON INSTAGRAM

In addition to the invisible character and Enter key feature that we teach you in this article, there are websites and apps that you can access and download to make it easier to structure the text of your Instagram caption or Bio.
