I need to get access to the additional info in a true type font, such as description, copyright info etc. The standard metrics are already catered for so I don't need assistance on that, thanks.

Does anyone have any pointers as to how I can achieve this simply?

TIA

Not quite what I was hoping for. Managed to find a nice bit of Delphi source code that shows how to do it on my own.

Still, it would be churlish to deny the points.
