The True Center

When you use the Attributes palette (Window>Attributes) to show the center of a star, you’ll note that the center point isn’t exactly centered. Rather than try to explain why this happens (which isn’t really important since we can’t change it), let’s see how to find the true center of a star. Select the object, then choose Edit>Copy (Command-C [PC: Control-C]), and then Edit>Paste in Front (Command-F [PC: Control-F]). From the Object menu choose Path>Average (Command-Option-J [PC: Control-Alt-J]). In the dialog, click Both for Axis. The point that appears is the true center of the object.
