Internal dimension of offset

Hi all,

I have some text imported from illustrator and I’m trying to create an offset with an internal dim of 6mm.

obviously the offset function only allows me to specify the dim from the edge i drag it from and that would require me to know the exact width of the imported text but that’s kind of difficult because the text is not necessarily uniform in width.

is there some kind of work around?
