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.

Customizing

Responsive and State Variants

By default, only responsive variants are generated for leading utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the leading utilities by modifying the leading property in the modules section of your Tailwind config file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   leading: ['responsive'],
+   leading: ['responsive', 'hover', 'focus', 'active', 'group-hover'],
}
}

Disabling

If you don't plan to use the leading utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the leading property to false in the modules section of your config file:

{
// ...
modules: {
    // ...
-   leading: ['responsive'],
+   leading: false,
}
}
