Equal spacing in a circle

I am sure this is covered somewhere I just don’t see it. I am trying to place 6 circles equal distance in a radial pattern.

Draw a circle. Then move the center point of the circle to the desired radius. Then click on the “+” next to the circle and it will turn blue indicating “copy of” original. Click on the arrow that rotates in the direction you want. 360 divided by 6 is? Move each copy that much by rotating it. Make 5 copies.

Or draw an hexagon with the polygon tool,set as you want, and the corners is new circles centers.

I like the hexagon idea, that way you just place the circles to the corner points and make them equal

Here is a solution for common Copy-Rotate cases with the Move/Rotate tool:
