Hi, I'm a webtoon content editor. I've been struggling scaling the shape that has to be distance from the text about 40px or more depend on the size of the text. So i try to use guideline tool, 1st I add a guideline base on a text by using View > New guide frome shape, after that I want to add another guideline with about 40px distance around the text but Idk how to do it. Idk if I need a script for this or something.

 

If anyone know how to make it or you have any other ideal to work it fast, can you teach me how to do it. Thanks a lot.

You guy can try with the psd file in the attach file.

Create the text as paragraph text or type directly inside the shape without converting it to a guide. That said, of course PS is more or less the wrong tool for this. Illustrator or Indesign would be more appropriate for lettering.
