Having an issue in Illustrator where I accidentally switched the anchor point for all objects when sizing, flipping, rotating etc... and not sure how to switch it back. By default the anchor should be at the center of shape / text, but every time I input numerical values it anchors at the bottom left corner.

Hello @Vanessa254025076ngz,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I am assuming the objects are as you intended. If yes, then you may try the steps shared in this tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9to3DEEndac) to remove and add anchor points and check if it helps.

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

Vanessa,

 

Maybe a silly question, but can the issue be that you have accidentally switched from the centre to the lower left Reference Point in the Transform panel (see A in the overview)?
