I find that drawing circles in Diptrace is really not optimized.
Instead of specifying the coordinates of the circles end, I think having another options of specifying the circle radius and it's center coordinate is way much easier especially when you want to move the circle to an exact location on the layout.
I use circles to create route keep out in order to leave copper gaps between mounting holed and the surrounding copper pour.

It is basically the feature that mounting holes possessed but applied to drawing circles.

This is known issue, I agree it should be improved. Thank you for the request.

I second this. Draw/edit circle by centre and radius would be really great! thanks Alex.
