Ability to Center Anchor Points in Titles and Layers
In After Effects, you're able to use two features called "Center in View" and "Center Anchor Point in Layer Content" which made it easy to precisely center your text layers and other effects. It would be nice to also implement these features into Premiere Pro as well so that centering your layers and assets can be much more simpler.

Choose View > Snap in Program Monitor. Then, drag the anchor point toward the center of the box, then press Ctrl (WIN) or CMD (macOS), you'll see the red crosshairs appear guiding you to the center point.
Rather cumbersome. It should be easier and one should have the ability center the anchor point like this with multiple text and graphic layers quickly or as a preference.

Great, thanks, James.
Like Dacia said, thank you for the good suggestion.
For centering the anchor point, there is a workaround using snapping...
1. With the Program Mon in focus, check on View > Snap in Program Mon
2. Select a shape, clip or text layer... or a whole Graphic
3. Click and drag on the Anchor Point and move it toward the center of your selection.. it will snap to the center axes
For 'Center in View', with any layer selected, go to the EGP and look right under where it says Align and Transform. There are buttons for Vertical Center and Horizontal Center there. I think that's what you want, right?
