A New Interface

Move Anchor Point is now an extension, which means you get a more powerful, more responsive and a more personalized user experience.

Never used an extension before? You can learn how to install them here.


Don't want your interface cluttered with tools you don't use? Move Anchor Point 4 has a modular interface, so you can show only the tools you want and hide the ones you don't need.


Adjust and resize the grid for your needs. If you want more preset positions, you can add them. If you need a larger interface or want to shrink it down and tuck it into a corner of your workspace, you can do that too!

Custom Move Presets

Custom moves allow you to get more precise by specifying exact x, y and (if applicable) z coordinates or percentages.

You can now save your custom moves as presets to quickly reuse them with a single click!

Search Matching

In addition to the previous 'match' functionality, there is a new powerful way to match anchor points. Rather than selecting layers by hand, you can automatically search and match anchor points based on naming conventions.

You can even save common searches as presets to reuse them in a snap.

The Preferences Panel

Control the interface with the all new preferences. Set the defaults just the way you like them so they'll be set for you each time Move Anchor Point starts.

Z Space Presets

The z-space presets (available in Selection mode only) have been redesigned to be straightforward.

Speed Enchancements

We've done some housekeeping on the code to make Move Anchor Point more efficient and provide some speed improvements along with it, saving you precious milliseconds.

Shape Layer Improvements

You can now move the anchor point of a shape layer based on a selection of its contents.
