Chrome issue with text wrap

We spotted a bug in text wrap in Chrome a few months back, it apparently has been in Chrome since version 76. It doesn’t affect all text wrap layouts, but it does affect complex ones.

We have opened a bug with Chrome in December and they have fixed it a couple days ago:

Unless they find other issues their bug fix is expected to come around the Chrome 90 or 91 timeframe (Chrome 90 expected on April 13th, 91 probably another month).

If your site is affected and you want to publish your site with a workaround for the Chrome bug you can do the following:

  • close Sparkle
  • from a command line Terminal type the following and press enter: defaults write eu.riverdesign.sparkle chromeWrapPolyfill -bool YES
  • restart Sparkle
  • publish again
