External link icon partially disappears at small font sizes

When scaling the document font to size 13 or smaller, the external link icon starts to sink below the line of text and gets cropped/clipped, as seen here for size 10:

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open sandbox vault.
  2. Find an external link or add your own.
  3. In the Appearance settings, change the font size to 12 or smaller.

Expected result

Link icon repositions and/or resizes to remain fully visible.

Actual result

Link icon remains the same size and “sinks” below the line of text, effectively having its bottom portion cropped.
