Fixed Circles

Fixed circles have no radius point. To generate such a circle, hold the shift key when defining the radius point, or use the special tool for this. This will open the settings dialog, where you can enter any expression for the radius. If the circle is dragged immediately after the generation, the settings dialog will not open, but the current size will be used.

Fixed circles can be sized to the distance of two points using any expression. Instead of writing the expression in the propertiesdialog, the value can be taken from the construction. Either use another expression, or two points, or another circle. for this, use the button "Set size ..." in the settings dialog.

The size of fixed circles can be dragged with the mouse, if the fixed state is released in the properties dialog. If the fixed state is set and the center of the circle is free, the center will be dragged instead.
