There are five different types of circles available in FX Draw.  Each of the circle figures has been created to solve a different drawing problem.  What makes them different is how the circle's control points are used to define the circle.

When you draw a circle it will be drawn with a default centre mark.  You have a choice of seven centre marks and these can be changed by right clicking on the circle.  These are the same marks that you can choose as points for the point tool.

 

Circles can be filled using the fill palette (see Setting Fill Type).

 

The centre mark for the circle can be set as a default.

 

When you are drawing diagrams including circles, your choice of circle tool can make a large difference to the ease with which you will draw your diagram.
