[PD] reporting the dimensions of a symbol / float atom

Yes, that's why I suggested looking in there. The relevant variables are:

* font_metrics 
* font_zoom2_metrics
* font_measured
* font_zoom2_measured

The first two are an array of pixel sizes per character used when trying to find the font size that fits. This is done in the fit_font_into_metrics proc.

The second two arrays contain the measured sizes: fontsizes charwidth charheight

Note that there is also code in the C core which accesses these sizes and you may get a consistency check error when changing some of the metric numbers.
