Set arbitrary origin of objects, outside “Free transform” tool?

Jul 31, 2012 5:37 PM




With ModifyTransformFree Transform a nice thing is that we can move the origin, unlike with other tools that the origin is the center of the image.


If I am using other tools such as the one recommended by groove25 in, is there any way I can set arbitrary origin?

    You'll notice with the Star Auto shape, for example, that when you click on the Transform tool to select it, a small black circle (the rotation point) appears in the center of the star. You can drag that circle anywhere you like to relocate the rotation point.

    It shouldn't revert unless you switch from the rotation tool to the pointer tool. What are you trying to do with the object?
