Illustrator: Transform Each with Pivot

If you want to Move or Rotate or Scale multiple objects individually at the same time, Transform Each [Object > Transform] is the way to go. Or, if you want to apply multiple transformations at the same time, you would use Transform Each. But you can only pivot your object against one of the corner points. This is especially cumbersome for rotate, because sometimes you want the rotate to revolve around a non center point.

The solution? Simple! Just group two objects together and transform both. Illustrator finds the center point, and provides a new off-object pivot point!
