Guides for accurate placement?

I am wondering how to accurately place items in my plan. I imported a pdf of a plan and am creating a lighting and electrical plan on it. Is there a way to accurately place the fixtures in the center of a space or with consistent distances between them? I have tried creating rooms by “tracing” my pdf plan, but even then I don’t see a guide that will help me to say, center a fixture in that room or place recessed lights with even spacing between them. Is it just “eyeballing” that is possible? Thanks.
