you can use the Leading property, it returns the amount of space between
two lines of text,
Yeah I thought of that but I would need to somehow get the leading value from each line in the textbox, then add them together, because it is not always the same... is there a way to do this?
yes, text Frames have a Lines property, you need to loop thru them, plus you need to loop thru each character since they can have different Leading values each.
Is there a way to find out what the first baseline offset is set to? ie Ascent, Cap Height, Leading.. etc.
I don't see anything about this in the reference guide.
Also the height of the ascent..
