Thank you for taking my query.
I have drawn a board, 30"x15"x1". I want to draw small circles in precise locations on the board. So far I have learned that one cannot position the circle as one draws it–one must first draw the circle SOMEWHERE and then MOVE it to the desired location. I have successfully moved the circle to the desired location, but the move tool will not allow me to select the center point; it only allows me to select an endpoint that is located on the curve of the circle (or one of the endpoints among those formed by the straight edges that approximate the circle). This means that when I move the circle after selecting it (a point on the circle, not the center), that point that I have selected is placed at the coordinates I type into the move tool measurements box. So the center of the circle is off from the point I want it to be by the distance of the radius of the circle. Also, since the point on the circle I selected was imprecisely selected, it might be at any of the possible angles, making the positioning of the circle even less precise.
How do I move the circle so that the center of the circle is the same as the coordinates I want for that center point? Please assume my Sketchup ability is between 2.5 and 3.0 on a scale from 1 to 10. If at all possible, please describe how to do it entering endlessly precise coordinates in the Measurements Box. Thank you.
