    all the way

    "All the way" originally seems to mean "for all the points of going somewhere", but for this, is it an emphasis that her office is much on the other side?
    6-2)Kate’s office was all the way on the other side of town, and every
    evening it would take her over two hours to make her way home.

    I don't understand your first definition. Here "all the way" means that her office was far away, across town, probably at the extreme edge of that town.
