Make the info panel show the location of a circle with respect to the center point

I'm drawing circles and the info window shows the location of each circle with reference to a point on the edge of the circle rather than with respect to the center point of the circle. Is there a way to make it show the coordinates of the circle with respect to the center?

How about the Transform panel with the reference point in the center?

I don't know exactly what you mean. How about the Transformation and/or the Properties Panel? Outline View an/or Smart guides shows the centerpoint if is checked in the Attribute Panel and so on.

Let me try to clarify.

Please note that 0,0 on my artboard is set to the lower right-hand corner.

I have a circle on my artboard. It's 0.75" in diameter. The center of the circle is located at x=72.5, y=24.75. On the Info panel (Window->Show Info), the object coordinates are shown as 72.875, 25.125. That, of coursse, is the coordinates of the upper left hand corner. As it happens, I could care less where the upper right hand corner is, but I care very much about where the center is. I see no reason why I should have to do arithmetic to get the value I want to know when I have a very expensive computer sitting in front of me. This is, after all, the "Info" window. Hey, Adobe, how about having the "Info" window show the desired "Info"? That's what I'd like to know how to accomplish.

I did finally figure out that the properties panel (Windows->Properties) can do what I want to do.
