One of the things I'm working on at the moment involves drawing fonts at big sizes onto the screen (think Teleprompter and you're close). Right now, I'm using a TBitmap, drawing my text, and then sizing it onto the screen. I'm doing this okay, but the problem I'm running into is the usual text guttering (or whatever the proper name for it is, it's the space in pixels between lines of text). I drop my drawn text to file and find about 300 pixels of white space between each line, which (obviously) is a gulf of space.
The main question is if there's some setting on TFont or the Canvas that I'm missing to reduce this, or if I need to crop the text after I draw it initially before I put it out to screen?
