How to force Inventor holes in existing points only?

A - answer When using the Hole command, I want to use just fixed, dimensioned and constrained points in my existing sketch. When I miss such point when picking the hole center, Inventor creates a new "free" point and a misplaced hole. How to avoid this?

Since Inventor version 2020.1, the hole properties panel contains the icon "Allow center point creation", which prevents creating holes by "free" clicking (see image):
