Text Hightlighing height inconsistent/too deep

I like to highlight keywords in bullets like so:

Highlighted words version 1

But when two highlighted words are above each other in new paragraphs, like "Issuers" and "Acquirers" are here, the text highlight on the top word extends down to merge with the next paragraph -- there is no leading between them.

A workaround is to put a soft return after each paragraph, however by doing that I can't tighten up the space between paragraphs as I would like.

Workaround

Another work around would be to make each paragraph a separate text block.  But I'd rather not,  if there was some other way to keep the depth of the text highlight uniform.

Hi Mark!

Thanks for taking the time to share those workarounds!

You're correct the highlighted text does blend if there isn't an extra line below each paragraph. You've listed all the ways to avoid this such as click "return" to add an additional space or add separate text boxes. 

I haven't seen this topic discussed in the Community but I'm eager to hear other workarounds!
