void CGText::DrawText(CDC *pDC)
{
      CRect rect, r;
      FORMATRANGE fr;
      rect = m_position;
      rect.NormalizeRect();
      r = rect;
      r.DeflateRect(1, 1);
      pDC->FillSolidRect(r, m_logbrush.lbColor);
      CPoint oldOrg = pDC->SetWindowOrg(rect.left, rect.top);
// 30 - the magic number
      rect.top = (rect.top + 1) * 30;
      rect.left = (rect.left + 1) * 30;
      rect.bottom = (m_position.Height() - 3) * 15 + rect.top;
      rect.right = (m_position.Width() - 3) * 15 + rect.left;

      fr.hdc = pDC->m_hDC;
      fr.hdcTarget = pDC->m_hDC;
      fr.rc = rect;
      fr.rcPage = rect;
      fr.chrg.cpMin = 0;
      fr.chrg.cpMax = -1;
      
      m_pHyper->FormatRange(&fr);
      pDC->SetWindowOrg(oldOrg);
}
 I am trying to display CRichEditCtrl in my view class.
The function above is member of class that represent the text in the document. The "magic number" 30 is realy magic, if I change it text will not move correctly on screen. Online help says that rect shoud be in TWIPS, but I can't convert it. pDC have MM_ANISOTROPIC. Please help.

There are 1440 twips to a logical inch. You can also use CDC::DPtoLP to convert your device points in to logical points, then do a little math to convert logical points into twips.

m_position is in logical coordinates and DPtoLP will not work
