Exporting circular line "points"

I mistakenly created circular lines as points in the User Features layer, about 60 of them. Is there any way to create a point shapefile from them or convert them to points using Global Mapper (8 or 9) or other tools? I can export them as areas obviously, but I'd like to be able to use as points, such as in a GPX export.

    What you could do is use the File->Export Vector->Export Simple ASCII Text file menu command to export the coordinates, then re-import that exported file as a "Point Only" file. Then you'll get a separate point feature for each vertex in the original line/area features.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
