If you've already enabled auto publishing to Instagram from Later, your captions will be automatically added once the post goes live on Instagram! However, these captions will not preserve the lines and spaces added. These are removed by Instagram.
The good news is that if you are looking to keep a clean and formatted caption, you can choose to publish to Instagram via Later's mobile notifications! Later will preserve those lines for you and once published to Instagram those formats will stay intact 🙌🏽
Plus you can also do some last edits to your post and add tags, locations and filters!
Here's how it works!
Publishing to Instagram via Later's mobile notifications:
Open the mobile notification we send to your mobile device when it's time to post!
Once you open the post from Later to Instagram, we actually copy the caption you created on desktop or mobile to your phone's clipboard. All you have to do is paste your caption in Instagram (you can do this by holding your finger on the caption area to get the paste option!).
Once you receive your alert, open your photo in the Instagram app, and paste the caption
Have an IOS? Tap your finger in the caption box to paste.
Have an Android? Hold your finger in the caption box to paste.
Instagram no longer lets any third party app automatically carry over your captions -- they made this change due to too many apps out there ruining the fun for everyone.
