Center marks can be edited through grips.
- Center grip: drag the grip to move the center mark*.
- Overshoot grips: drag the grip to lengthen the extension line**.
*Use the CenterReset command to reset the centerline.
**If you lengthen an extension line, it loses its associativity, and so changing the diameter does not adjust the changed extension line. It will, however, still moved along with a circle.
