# Fixed line-heights

Use the leading-{size} utilities to give an element a fixed line-height, irrespective of the current font-size. These are useful when you need very precise control over an element’s final size.

# Responsive

To control the line height of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing line height utility. For example, use md:leading-loose to apply the leading-loose utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<p class="leading-none **md:leading-loose** ...">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet ...</p>
