Acumin Pro web font overlapping

I'm running into a strange issue with Acumin Pro ExtraCondensed Black. The font is preventing adjacent elements from being clickable.

 

I've put together a simple codepen here: https://codepen.io/Emily-Johnson-the-bashful/pen/PoyadWq

 

You'll see a link directly above the H1. If you try to hover over the link, you'll see that the cursor doesn't turn to a pointer. It's as if the H1 is overlapping the link even though it shouldn't be - the line-height is 1 and there is no negative margin or any sort of positioning.

I've never seen this happen with any other Adobe web font. Any insight or a fix would be greatly appreciated. I simply need to position links above an H1 like I'm showing in the codepen.

This is also visible if you select the text with your cursor. You'll see that the selected area actually goes on top of the adjacent link even though it shouldn't.

Hi Emily,

 

Welcome to our community forum. We are sorry for your difficulties. It looks like the measurements (metrics) for Acumin are generous which would explain the issue. We can look into the metrics and make sure there aren't any bugs with the font. In the meantime, you could try the below CSS, we were able to create a workaround by adding this to the <h1> tag:

 

position: relative;
z-index: -1;

 

This tells the browser to put the h1 behind the link.

 

Please let us know if this helps. Mea

Thanks Neelam, that CSS does work as a workaround.
