Yes! LilyPondTool can do that, in ruler mode.
Let me clarify;
You have to download jEdit, then install it, then get the lilypond tool plugin
under "plugin Options". Then open your .ly, click "run lilypond", wait for it,
then when it's done open the Lilypond PDF Preview. Switch to ruler mode and move
the object around, then copy the code it gives you into the .ly file where you
want it :)
