Monospace text node issue

Hey Figma community,

I’m learning about design and I’m curious why with the following monospace font (Roboto Mono), t + b are 8px wide individually but together they are 15px wide.

Is there some sort of extra hidden padding for text nodes that I should be aware of, or am I missing understanding of something else?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Individual text boxes are always rounded to the next whole integer in width and height to avoid fractional sizes that are very hard to deal with.
