thanks Djordje,

I should have been searching first, and then ask.

Still I think it should be an automatic option for drawing circles in Archicad like it is in that 2D drawing program

You can draw a circle which is tangent to two lines or circles or arcs and has a given radius, by typing TTR after invoking the circle command, then selecting the two lines, arcs, or circles to which you want to make the new circle tangent, then typing in the radius of the new circle (or, alternatively, "showing" AutoCAD the radius by picking two points on the screen).
