    Aligning (shifting) text on a path based on geometrical character size

      Let's take some text on a path:

      By defaut, text logically lays on the path. But I need to shift baseline so the higher character is aligned on its top to the path.

      We all know pointSize but it's not representative of the font's characters design (unless I am wrong).


      Obviously I can do some outlining computation but before I go down this road, i wanted to check there wasn't some more logical stuff to look at.


      So feel free to share your thoughts


      Thanks in advance,
