Measure/Inspecting distance from text baseline instead of bounding-rect.
It would be great to be able to measure distance from the text baseline (first and last baseline when multiple line) instead of the bounding-box.
Indeed, there is non-sense to use the bounding-box since this one is going to be different depending of the client (iOS, Android, web...).
Whereas the baseline of the text is universal and 100% reliable no matter what's the platform.

Totally agree with this. It seems a dumb way to show measurements from a text box - which can be saved into the design at any size. The baseline to text is 100% accurate and the system I work to in my design.
Isn't the distance to bounding box actual CSS behavior?
