%dy - Vertical Displacement


To provide a vertical displacement by a non-integral number of character depth units.


double precision d      (input)


%dy is used to force a vertical displacement by a possibly fractional number of character depths. The displacement is calculated in terms of the initial font size, regardless of any %ts - Text Size formats that may have been used. The displacement can be negative, but unlike %rp - Relative Position, the normal mechanism will operate to prevent two controls overlapping, so %dy cannot be used to place a control over something else.


A value for d of 0.5D0 is equivalent to a half line feed.

%dy has no effect when there is no space for the next item to move into.
