Add reference point locator for symbols
Symbols only have registration point. Fine, store it. Use it as default for scaling-rotating and so on. But why I can't set reference point for transforming it as I want, and as I can for EVERYTHING else?! What, AI can't calculate it's left top coordinate or what? Why can't I flip it over the left edge, for example? Why can't I even COPY it's top left coordinate?
Shh, calm down.
This can be done with Transform panel’s flyout menu — disable 'Use Registration Point for Symbol' option.

It took me a while to remember one can do it.
While this is the actual solution, the discoverability is an issue.
Why there is no way to toggle it in the Symbols panel’s menu?
Why can’t we have it per symbol?
