    The text height measurements methods in DOORS were using
    Microsoft Win32 API which is most often used to print a
    range of text on given device (e.g printer or memory
    buffer). Thus all \page and 0xc (From Feed) switches were
    influencing text rendering in Rich Edit Control.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Measurements were wrapped in loops to ensure all text is
    correctly printed.
