Measuring Text Dimensions

Hello, when measuring a body of text, is there a way to set the dimensions of the text box to hug the actual letter?

For example, in the below screenshot, I want to measure from the top and bottom of the “A”. But it has a lot of added spacing.

This makes measuring the space between text elements and other elements a bit off.

Yeah, another feature I’m was used to while working with sketch but missing in figma as far as I know. I found a closed feature request regarding that: Option to measure text layer from baseline

From a bit of poking around this forum, can see that this feature has been asked a few times, but no reply or action from Figma. Bit unfortunate.
