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.
Right now there is not a way to configure that feature to do the baseline, but that would be nice!
I would welcome such a feature too.
As a work-around I would first type a word without descenders and then add new guides again after finishing the line of text...
I that work-around would be less efficient than typing the actual copy, doing the New Guides from Shape, and then adjusting the bottom guide. Especially when working on a complicated piece that requires adding and clearing guidelines as you go to stay organized. It would be very problematic to filter out descenders every time you want to guideline a particular block of text.
