Hi Antoine,

Point size, as in 15 point font? 

I tried according to the FT2 docs, design metrics -> device metrics (TrueType 

        (y_ppem / units_per_em) * design_y
        (20 / 2048) * 1697 = 16.57

And 16 pixels is barely high enough to fit a glyph in, so the lines would be 
very close together indeed. 

Am I doing something obviously wrong? :)

Thanks again for your help,
