I've never noticed this before, but when using GetTextMetrics() to get the height of the font to display the next line with proper spacing, if I use '(' or ')', they get chopped off when displaying the next line. Does GetTextMetrics() only give height for alphanumeric characters? Not sure if other fonts do the same thing.
GetTextMetrics() fills in a structure about the font. For all fonts I am using, I am using tmHeight+tmExternalLeading as my total character height. tmExternalLeading is 0 for some reason and so it is chopping off certain special characters when displaying the next line. Alphanumerics seem OK. If I add 2 to the total character height, then special characters display fine, but that seems like a hack.
