I am trying to display my list in sharepoint as:

Title 1
Content content content (Aka field1)

Title 2
Content content content (Aka field2)

(formats applied to title and content)

I do not have access to SPD.

I used to work around by:
- addding custom css through content editor
- creating custom columns with column value wrapped in HTML
- setting view style to newsletter

but this no longer works in sp online. I have tried json column formatting, but all view styles seem to render as tables and I can't get the effect of one column on top of another.

Any thoughts?

Try CSR (Client side Rendering), either by creating a JS Link or a SharePoint Add-in.


If this is caused by the switch to the modern ui, then your only option is to build a custom webpart to display the data as desired with SPFx https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/sharepoint-framework-overview

For modern lists and libraries you will also get the option for Row formatting later this year. However, I don't think it will deliver what you are looking for.
