Unnecessary padding/gap between text and underline decoration

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm relatively new to Squarespace but have been developing a new website for a church. I have managed to get to the 11th hour without any problems (only solutions (!) from you trusty folk) but alas, I've been hit with one and it's a real head scratcher.

I noticed that suddenly out of the blue a gap has appeared between text and a decorative underlines (I've been using the curve style and the hand-drawn squiggly one throughout the site) I have tested with a few other decorative styles and they all seem to shift a bit once I come out of the editing mode however they are behaving and sitting where they should whilst in editing mode. This wasn't a problem yesterday so something has happened since then. I have removed any custom CSS injections and refreshed but that didn't help so I have added them back in again.

I'm wondering if there is a global setting for padding but I can't find it or if anyone has some sort of solution to my problem? Going live in a few days time and would really like to get to the bottom of it before then.

Note: I also have noticed that the problem is also occurring in the navigation titles when they become underlined. Meanwhile,  various hyperlinks throughout the site seem to be fine and have an appropriate underline.

I've attached 3 screen grabs of the issue and 1 screen grab of how it used to look when the issue wasn't an issue!

Many thanks in advance,
