Is there an automated way to indicate the center of circles

Greetings again, Is there a way to have Inkscape draw a mark at the center of circles - a cross or a dot or dot with cross would all be fine. To be clear, I mean an actual object in the drawing.

Re: Is it possible to arrange all-upright text on a circular path? If so How?

The Knob Scale Generator extension linked by polygon above works great for about 75% of what I need. For the rest I'll try using the "arrange" tool and/or just doing it by hand. Thanks so much for all the replies and suggestions!

Re: (root) layer?

Thanks. Cut and pasting sort of works... sometimes. I'd be more specific but if there is a pattern to this I haven't been able to work it out. Sometimes the and past works and sometimes it doesn't. The reason that I know that it intermittant is because 90+% of the time when I paste, it pastes a rast...

(root) layer?

Greeting again... I have another probably stupid question but... When I load in a flattened svg file (exported from CAD software) it imports fine and shows up on what the little dropdown layer menu at the bottom of the window calls (root).

Is it possible to arrange all-upright text on a circular path? If so How?

Greetings, I need to arrange vertically aligned (i.e. upright) around a circular path. I know how to have text follow a path but I can only get such text to align normally to the path (i.e. text at the 9 o'clock position on a circle is sideways, not upright) but that is not what I need. Think of the...
