NEW UPDATE 9/29:   Backspacing/deleting in a forwarded or replied email causes the draft email to freeze.   See my post from today towards the bottom of this thread.

UPDATE:  I think this may have been happening longer than I realized... I just tried on an iPad that didn’t have the last update applied and this doesn’t happen so it’s definitely related to one of the recent updates.

UPDATE 2:  When you forward some emails like a UPS notification it breaks down the whole image as separate pieces of the original image...see bottom of this post.

UPDATE 3:  I have sent feedback to Google on this and sent an email to Google One Support, so hopefully someone will be able to help.  I also posted a negative review on the App Store, which I am hoping to update with a positive review if this gets resolved.


In the Gmail app, when I reply or forward an email, the previous content below my response becomes spaced very far apart, like triple or quadruple spaced.   This just started happening today.

It doesn't happen if you reply from the Gmail web app, just the IOS mail app on an iPhone and iPad.

And it appears that it happens when replying or forwarding an email that came from outlook.  It doesn't happen when replying or forwarding to an email from a gmail address.

Again, today is the first time that this has happened.

Same. hopefully an update soon. I may have to move to the Outlook app. It's very unprofessional looking.

This has always happened to me whenever I copy/paste from Word. I even try the Slashed T to remove all formatting. It has no effect on the large line spacing. I can find no options whatsoever to format/reformat the line spacing to single (instead of line and a half or double.) I'm so glad someone brought up this thread. Totally frustrating.
