Custom field description's line spacing


Some of the custom field description's have an extra line between the custom field & its description.

In the example bellow, the description is for the field Requires upgrade verification & we can see that there is an extra blank line between the field & its description.


Is there a way we can remove that extra blank line?


This behavior is not consistent across all custom fields, some of them are ok:


When the description & the color are added through the Field Configuration menu, the problem doesn't occur.

To close the loop on this.

I think I had this problem because I had a description  for the field in both Custom field & Field configuration & one of them had a carriage return at the beginning of the description.


I'm learning. From now on, descriptions will be added through the Field configuration menu only.
