    "knocked down"

    I've been an engraver and graphic reproducer for the past 24 years and only today came across the term 'knocked down'. I have never heard the term before. My customer put a stroke through a capital 'P' and told me that he 'knocked down' the letter making it a small 'p'.
    Can anyone tell me more about this terms and if it's correct?

    That wouldn't have been my choice either but I suppose that that person could have been using 'knock down' figuratively, Katt.
