Textbox over 20px starts decreasing line-height. Bug?

Recommended Posts


I've noticed that if you create a text box and use a font size over 20px the line-height (spacing) keeps shrinking and looking wrong (Please try it using 26px for example, selecting from the tex box options). This also happens with other sections using big fonts in more than 1 line.


I've inspected my page and noticed that DMS2 uses a line height of of 1.5em :

line-height: 1.5em;

Shouldn't it be just (without em):

line-height: 1.5;

to avoid inheritance problems? like this recommendations suggest?:

Yeah nice catch, this is a bug, the em unit shouldn't be used. Thanks for reporting, I have added this to our tracker.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Danny I noticed it looks this bug is back. I have updated the text-sizes of several of my text boxes, but the line-height remains at 24px (1.5 of base font 16px). When I inspect the site body line-height is set to 1.5em.


Any advice on how I can change this is the meantime? I have tried this. It shows properly when I use CMD + ENTER and demo the custom css, but when I publish it, the line-height reverts back to 24px.


#page div.textbox-wrap div.hentry > p {
  line-height: 1.5;

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
