Inkscape: Snap shape center to stroke

I have an unfilled circle on which I want to draw smaller filled circles. I want to make sure that the center of the small circles is snapped to the stroke of the largest one, to ensure harmonious distribution of the shapes.

However, even enabling “Snap to objects”, I’m not sure that’s what I get. There doesn’t seem to be a center handle to snap on the stroke.

Any suggestion?


In the Snap Controls Bar select the following options:

  • Enable snapping
  • Snap nodes paths and handles
  • Snap to paths
  • Snap other points
  • Snap centres of objects

Here’s the result
