I can't find a way to set a custom anchor point for scaling and rotating. This is extremely useful and something I used frequently when working in Photoshop. Maybe there's something similar in Affinity Photo (under a different name), but I can't find it.

@HenrikF as shown above, the symbol is hidden when the setting in the toolbar is not activated. I really like that transform origin and other symbols are only visible when I need to use them.

Are you aware that you can rotate about the opposite corner when you hold the pointer slightly out from the corner points and the rotation symbol appears? You hold down CTRL, and rotate. It really often eliminates the need for me to see the transform origin/anchor point at all.

Just a little Sunday tip 🙂
