The descender metric for Windows. This, too, is distinct from Apple's Descender value and from the Typo Descender value. Win Descent is computed as the -yMin for all characters in the Windows ANSI character set. Win Descent is used to compute the Windows font height and default line spacing. For Symbol fonts, it is the same as -yMin.
If you click on "Calculate" the WinDescent value will be recalculated from the -yMin value. If the "Maximum" radio button is enabled, the -yMin for all characters in the font will be used.

If you do not click on "Calculate" the WinDescent value will not be changed from the value that you set.

Why do you need such a large value for your font?
