I don't know of a way to go directly to the Reference Point.
But CTRL+6 (CMD+6) will bring you to the control panel.
SHIFT+TAB brings you the reference point.
And CTRL(CMD) 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 brings you around the points (number pad can be used as reference for point selection, e.g., 9 is top right, 5 is middle, 1 is bottom lef)
Thanks Eugene, that's a handy tip. Quite why top left is 7 is beyond me though!
I agree with Mark though, it's incredibly fiddly to change the reference point. I would love to be able to make it unique to each object, rather than global.
Thanks. That makes perfect sense now. I was using the keys along the top of the keyboard.
Thanks everyone for your replies, as Eugene mentioned there is a script on indesignsecrets.com.
You can then assign a keyboard short cut to it.
The script is as follows;
I copied each one into a seperate script using ExtendScript Toolkit and saved it into my Indesign scripts panel folder. Then just applied a keyboard shortcut to it via the edit menu.
