Hello, I have a fairly simple question...
In maya, I've changed the pivot point of a plane to be on the edge instead of in the center. However, unity still seems to think that the pivot point is in the center. Anyone know how to finalize pivot point changes in maya so that they will import into unity?

In my experience it seems that the Maya "pivot point" is either not exported properly by Maya or not imported properly by Unity if you use OBJ format. It uses the center of the Maya grid as the anchor point.
If you use .ma or .mb (maya ascii or maya binary) then it works as expected and the pivot point in Unity will be the same as in Maya.

I use maya and I used to have this issue but I found a way that fixes it pretty much every time
Make sure to do this everytime you change anything on a model to prevent any issues
This should get rid of all the nasty bits from all your edits and freeze the pivot where you want it, always delete the history before an export to keep the model clean and get rid of all possible transforms laying around
Doubt you will see this but hopefully it will help someone searching
