@FencerX4242 it looks like your ‘icon’ image for spacing the text away from the character is too short, it needs to be a bit longer, and you may have to hand edit and check some text to make sure it doesn’t accidentally roll over onto the image.

I had it 32 pixels wide before, and after changing it, i have this problem now.

Use \n to force a line break before the second icon command.
