is there a way to have GSAP set the position of a HTML element by its center point rather than its top-left corner?


For example if I have a div that has width and height 100px, doing this sets the top left corner position to (500,500) not the center:


I can do it manually by calculating the size of the div and offsetting by that 1/2 that amount, but I'm lazy and wondering if it can be done automatically :)

I think not, but you can make a function that does the calculations for you:
