To follow up with an example, if you want a circle with center at

0.496,2.842 and a 1 inch radius:

* Make sure your grid is set for inches

* CIRCLE (0.496 2.842) (1.496 2.842)

NOT what the "help" sez....Syntax CIRCLE • •.. [center, circumference]

It says ...[center, CIRCUMFERENCE]. That means two sets of coordinates.

Let me try this another way...

What is the radius of a circle whose center is at (0.496 2.842) and

whose circumference passes through (1 0)? Does the same circle's

circumference just happen to pass through (0 0)?

Now try CIRCLE (0.496 2.842) (1.496 2.842) and use the info button to

read the circle's radius. You will see that it is 1 inch. That's because

the circumference passes through (1.496 2.842). As you can see, the

horizontal value 1.496 is one inch greater than 0.496 and the y

coordinate has not changed.

This is the way Eagle has done it for over 10 years. It is not the usual

way CAD programs work, but there you have it.
