    You may inject Custom CSS to achieve that. I cloned your form and managed to get it positioned like this:

    And here's your original spacing for comparison:

    I also took the initiative of adjusting the "Tursi's Latin King" line a bit to the left using CSS so it aligns perfectly with the element on top of it. Here are the codes that I used:

    #cid_26 {

       margin-top: -20px;

       margin-left: -10px;


    And this is how and where you can inject them on your dashboard:

    Should you need to adjust the position further, just edit the values of the margins I used. Increasing the negative value of margin-top will move the element a bit higher (and vice versa). Increasing the negative value of margin-left will move the element a bit to the left (and vice versa).

    Hope that helps! Don't hesitate to reach out if you need further help.
