You can constrain a circle or square to a perfect circle or square by
holding down the shift key while you drag the circle tool on the canvas.
You can't do this from the center, but you could select your object and
group it so it has a center point. Open the Object inspector and check
"Use Center Point" and then precisely define the x,y coordinates of the
center by typing in the exact numbers of x and y into the Object
Inspector.
