    Can the new feature, "New Guides from Shape" be configured to get the baseline?

      I love the new Guide Features, long overdue. This could exist otherwise I'll put in a Feature Request.

       

      New Guides From Shape on text is auto-locating the outer bounds, so the descender line at the bottom:

      I'd like it to instead use the more appropriate Baseline:

      Is this already possible? One of the first things I did was Shortcut the feature since this is something I do so often manually --- it would be great if it could do Baseline though either in addition to (holding shift or something) or in place of the descender line. That's what designers use to align text. Guides already snap to baseline so Adobe has the system in place already.
