    "the text gets messed up"?

    As shown. Sometimes when I email or text someone, the text gets mixed up. Some parts of the preceding sentence mixed up with the succeeding one. Or it is the other way round.

    How do I say that in English? Is this an accepted expression: The text gets messed up. Try to open it in your desktop.
