Center Path / Shape Anchor Point
Currently there is no way to center a paths anchor point. It would be helpful to have a keyboard shortcut that would take the current selected path anchor point and center it to the path points, much like Ctrl + alt + Home does for layers.
This would allow path level animation to happen around the center of the path or shape instead of wherever the Anchor Point is arbitrarily put when created.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

It's not even a feature request, it's common sense.
I can't understand why this isn't implemented yet. Feels like the ppl creating the soft never communicate with ppl actually usign it.
Go to Preferences > General, and enable the "Center Anchor Point in New Shape Layers" option. It's not the same as the keyboard shortcut, but it should make working with shapes a little easier.

Totally agree with this. In general, the program needs to improve the navigation between groups and shapes created on the same layer.
