Add Reference Point to "Convert to Shape" effect
When using the convert to shape effect, it would be useful to be able to specify a reference point to the dialog, about which the effect can transform. For example, the current implementation distributes the effect from the centre across the height/width axes. A reference point would allow you to add extra dimension to the left/right/top/bottom (as required) and would be extremely useful in UI construction, among other things.
Meanwhile, Astute Graphics made a Make Shape effect, which is 42 times more powerful than the native one. Just look at this screenshot.
This, for example, will allow to build nice dimensioning lines as styles (while Ai lacks them as a native tool)
And I would like to see an option to offset the reference point in the Transform Effect too!

That will be really useful for my feature request:
