    So how do you sketch a point in 2D Sketching? I want to add a point on the perimeter of a circle to reference a distance to another line on the sketch. I don't see Point on the Sketch Figure. Am I missing something? I'm using Alibre Atom.

    Try 'node'.

    Yeah Alibre refers to points as "nodes", it should be the little crosshair-looking tool in your Sketch Figures panel. Nodes you place yourself will have a crosshair going through them in the Sketch as well, while the ones that are created as endpoints/midpoints/etc. from lines will just appear as dots, however AFAIK they can both be treated the same way.
