How to create points at circle centers?

A - answer The free LISP utility CADstudio P2C will convert selected circles to points, or points to circles. So you can e.g. style points (other than PDMODE) or convert circles to direct coordinates.

The P2C command creates circles of the given radius at selected points (or in centers of other circles).

The C2P command creates points in the coordinates of the centers of selected circles.

The new objects are created with the same color and layer as the original (source) entities. The DELOBJ controls whether the source objects are deleted or not.

You can download the P2C utility at
