on a 1600*1200 TFT and a 800*600 screen.
"line space hack"
Because truetype fonts use much space for French accent, TÀÁÂÃÄÅÆ but most languages not need
this chars. So you can reduce the linespace between chars by set a - value.
English Users can set to -3.German users can set to -1 or -2.
The setting depend what accent chars your language need.So it is called hack to show that it can
cause in some cases disadvantage of non reading accent chars.
default in truetypemanager set to uswindescender.This give better convert results.
