I have created a path using the Pen tool. I have selected one point in the path using the Direct Selection tool and now I would like to check its Y coordinate so that I can make it the same as another point's Y coordinate. In Illustrator this is checked inside the Transform window, but I cannot seem to find where something similar exists in Photoshop. Usually I use Ctrl + T to get the dimensions and coordinates of objects/images, but if I do this for a path point, as I move the point down the canvas the Y coordinate increases instead of decreasing. Also if I simply copy the Y coordinate from one point and paste it onto the other point they still don't end up being vertically aligned.
Any suggestions on how to do this?
I won't say that I have come up with a foolproof and definitive answer, but this might help depending on your particular situation.
Turn on Snap vector tools and transform handles to pixel grid
Set the background colour (assuming you can see it) to any colour other than white so you can see the pixel grid (which needs to be turned on)
Zoom in so you can see the pixel grid.
Use the direct selection tool to nudge the point in question to the nearest pixel grid intersection.
Drag the ordinary grid zero point to your path point. Use a guide or two if it helps.
Your point will now be on zero, zero, and a new point can easily be placed on the same Y coordinate.
