Default Creating an object in the center of the stage??

I have a question that im sure is easily answered...when i create an object it just appears where ever my cursor is on the screen, i know there is a way so that any object is always created at the 0, 0, 0, coordinated right in the cented of the world....anyone know where to change the settings for that.
Thanks

Turn off interactive creation. Also turning it off on polygons doesn't mean its turned off on NURBS.

Thats changed in the Windows/Settings and Preferences/Preferences, its in the 'Settings" section and if you have to change the clipping plane, the 'Camera' settings is below that, of course you can change this on the cameras in your scene individually.
