Description (last modified by Michael Koch)

It's impossible to print several strings with drawtext in the same line. The vertical alignment depends on which characters are in the string. Can be reproduced as follows, case 1 without using "text_h":

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=yellow -lavfi drawtext=text='a_':x=20:y=50,drawtext=text='_gG':x=40:y=50,drawtext=text='':x=60:y=50 -frames 1 -y out1.png

Case 2 with "text_h" subtracted:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=yellow -lavfi drawtext=text='a_':x=20:y=50-text_h,drawtext=text='_gG':x=40:y=50-text_h,drawtext=text='':x=60:y=50-text_h -frames 1 -y out2.png

In both cases the vertical alignment of the strings is wrong.

The second string contains two accents or two "" characters. These characters are accepted in the command line, but are invisible here on TRAC.

I found a simple solution:
Replace y=50-text_h by y=50-ascent
This seems to work for all characters.
