      Is it possible to measure the distance between the end of the letters and the end of the line on type on a path?

          Hi

          Initial note: Optical margin might be an issue if you want great precision.

           

          CASE 1

          Text aligned to left. No tab. Check left indent

          CASE 2

          Text aligned to left. No left indent but tab inserted. Check tab panel.

          Click on the tab mark and check X position.

          (If there’s no tab mark, default value is 12,7 mm [0.5”])

          CASE  3

          Text aligned to right (or right tab inserted).

          In the tool panel, select Measurement tool (long click on Eyedropper tool to access it).

          Double click the Measurement icon (or Window > Info) to open the info panel. Click and Maj+Drag to measure distance. See Info panel:
