How can I provide variable (say 1.5) line spacing (like the ones used in MS Word) in an edit box?
Can this be done?
Thanks.

If you're creating a multi-font text editor, take a look at CRichEditCtrl.

With an edit control, you can (maybe) get something close:
Create a font using the LOGFONT structure (CreateFontIndirect API or CFont member), and in this you can specify how high you want each character cell (and if you know the only font available which is smaller and has the required precisionn is 2/3 as big).

Edit box does not have this capability.
You need to use CRichEditCtrl.
