Assuming you have a field 1 with several lines of text in it, and have set the textHeight of that field, then in a button script somewhere;
on mouseUpanswer the textHeight of fld 1 * lineOffset(yourText,fld 1) + the top of fld 1end mouseUp

Subject: Y coordinate for a line of text

I’m needing to know the coordinate (Y is the tricky one) for a line of text. I’m not do a very good job at calculating it. I think I remember a newish LC command or function that achieved this but I can’t locate it in the dictionary. Am I imagining?
