Drawing Circles

mdanbury
Hi,  Whenever I try and draw a cicle librecad just inserts one with a radius of 1, if you are doing a large drawing and move the mouse even slightly you then can't find it as it seems to be only one pixel across which I then can't see on the screen so I have to zoom in until I can then find it so that I can then set the correct radius via modify properties and then zoom out again.  Is there a better way of doing this?

Regards

Mike

The command line asks for the radius.

When I use the circle/radius command, I select a center point but the command box does not advance to the radius input.  If I use the enter key, the operation is completed with a predetermined radius with no opportunity to input my value.  What do I need to do to have the program recognize to that I have used the mouse to select the center and advance the command input for the radius?

FYI, to get that display, I had to turn on tool options in the toolbar menu.

Again, thank you.

How did you install LibreCAD?
What is your OS?
Usually the tool option bar should be enabled by default.

I installed from an internet download.
I am running Windows 10.
It may have been enabled by default, but I have tried to remove some toolbars to free up some screen space, so I may have turned it off not knowing what its function was.
