English term or phrase: with depth
Dzień dobry,

Kontekst niestety bardzo ubogi. W części o ustawieniach edytowanego tekstu mam zdanie:

"Toggle decreasing font size with depth"

Rozumiem, że narzędzie umożliwiające zmniejszanie rozmiaru czcionki, problem mam natomiast z "with depth". Czy chodzi o to, że dzieje się to na zasadzie stopniowego oddalania? Nie potrafię sobie niestety z tym poradzić.

Z góry dziękuję za pomoc.

Reference information:
p height

The distance from the baseline to the bottom of the lowest descender in a typeface. Also called descender depth.

Font metrics refers to metadata consisting of numeric values relating to size and space in the font overall, or in its individual glyphs. Font-wide metrics include cap height (the height of the capitals), x-height (the height of the lower-case letters) and ascender height, descender depth, and the font bounding box.

Descenders are parts of a character that lie below the baseline.
In typography, a descender is the portion of a letter that extends below the baseline of a font. The line that descenders reach down to is known as the beard line.[1]

For example, in the letter y, the descender is the "tail", or that portion of the diagonal line which lies below the v created by the two lines converging. In the letter p, it is the stem reaching down past the o.
