Center Point

Is there any way to move the center point (origin) of an object without having to move the object in edit mode?

yes, the buttons in the edit buttons

center new: moves center to boundbox center
center cursor: moves center to 3d cursor [which can be placed with shift+s or by left clicking]
center: moves object data to be around object center [usually not a good idea]

Save your work first. :smiley:
