Move to point issue ? pufferfish

From set of different text i want to move selected
object at the distance of 2.02 mm from end point of the text.
But when i tried to move it actually moves
up to 1.76mm. I wish to have whatever input text i am assigning from the last point of input text
it should move the selected object to accurate point/distance i am giving.

I am not sure what you mean, you didnt internalize your data, however the result distance from Move2Point is as expected for me.

You move from point on the rectangle and measure distance from different points

Actually i didn’t conveyed my problem rightly, I hope this image make it clear.

From this text i want to move any single letter at the distance of 2.02 mm. But i need to move it from the end point of given text. I internalized my data even in last time. I don’t know why it is not shown up to you. Thank you both.


@anon39580149 has pointed out the problem, it is where you are measuring from.

Try this:
Using bounding box.

It is no different, its just your math is correct and his is not :smiley:

So @ajarindia understands, this is the important part, no matter what bounding thing or moving thing you use.

If you update to 2.7 you will have that X output. In any case you shouldn’t use move to point here as you are just moving in a vector x direction and don’t have a target point.

thank you so much @maje90 @Michael_Pryor @anon39580149

sorry I am weak at math :pensive:

It is not a problem, those things are quite easy oversights to make :smiley:


I used v 2.6 and i hoped that Bounding Rectangle have x,y output
i just notice that from your post :smiley:, thank you for the update
