Misplaced Nulls after using “Nulls follow Points” on converted parametric shapes
After converting parametric shapes to Bezier paths and using the “Points follow Nulls” script. The Nulls are misplaced. A bit with a circle and a lot with rectangles. It also seems the error gets bigger the further the object is positioned from the center of the composition.
The problem does not exist with hand drawn paths.

Dear John, I tried resetting the position in the Transform section of the Group which indeed helped. But it would be great if that was not necessary as I have to reposition my element after that step. Please find attached my project file with two converted shapes and their Nulls. Thank you for the quick reply! Amazing support. I hope that is fixable. In the meantime I will use the work around.
Thank you for reporting this issue. In the Transform group of the Layer and also in the "Transform: Ellipse" group, could you reset the Anchor Point and Position properties back to default and see if that lines the Nulls up with the points?
Otherwise, it would be helpful if you could upload a sample project set up to show the offset.
Thanks so much,
