Positioning an object relative to another object at a certain distance

I’m trying to place four circles inside a rectangle, all with the same margin from the corner edges and although I can do this using guides or some calculations, I was wondering if there is a better way of doing this.

For example, can I select one of the circles and set it 20mm away from the bottom-corner edges of the rectangle, simply by choosing the edge line and entering the distance in an input field?

Answer

Of course you can do that. In this example, placing the circle 20 mm up/right from the bottom/left corner of the rectangle:

  • Align both shapes bottom/left
  • Select the circle
  • Put the cursor at the end of the X Value field and type +20Enter
  • Put the cursor at the end of the Y Value field and type -20Enter
