is there a program that can plot the exact measurements of corner to corner of each letter?

    yea me too lol. i dont know how to ask it haha. so imagine a straight line with marks. each mark will indicate a bend. for example the letter T has 8 corners (8 bends). i need straight line to have a mark on each corner from a to b and b to c, etc..

    I assume you're making returns, and I believe you're looking for the word "PERIMETER" - the total distance around a geometric shape...or, in this case, a letter.

    A CAD program like AutoCAD will give you the perimeter (and area) of grouped objects, and if they're un-grouped it will give you lengths of specific segments such as lines and arcs.

    Not sure about other programs...most will give you line segment length, but I don't know about arcs and beziers.

    Flexi will do this. Select your item and hit File>Job Statisitics. Shows the perimeter, area, etc.
