Find Text Leading from Acrobat PDF
Ever have to recreate a document from an Acrobat PDF? You can find out most everything about the text by using the Object Inspector, except the leading. Well, here's a cheesy way to figure it out. Open the PDF in Illustrator (you just need one page). Release any and all clipping masks. Draw a guide at the baseline of the first line of text, and one on the line below. Now, Option-drag the first line to make a copy, and position it exactly next to the original first line at baseline. Then put a return anywhere in the copied line. Now adjust leading of the copied lines, so that the second line of copy rests on the baseline of the second line of the original. Now you know your leading.
Or you could buy expensive software to find the leading. Your choice.
Developer Marco Arment is considering selling his 2013 Mac Pro and buying a new iMac with Retina 5K display and has written an extensive comparison to explain why. For single-threaded tasks, the iMac actually has a faster CPU, and it isn’t much slower at multi-threaded tasks than the Mac Pro. Plus, the iMac’s 5K Retina display is superior to anything you can use with the Mac Pro, and that will probably be true for some time. Overall, Arment thinks the Mac Pro is an increasingly niche product that is no longer best for his needs.
