Drawing Tools: Circle

The Circle option allows you to add a circle or ellipse anywhere on a view. To add a Circle or Ellipse:

  1. Select Circle from the toolbar or the Add Tool sub-menu of the Tools menu.

  2. Enter a point graphically with the mouse, or enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line.

  3. As you move the mouse, an ellipse will be drawn between the point entered in step 2, and the current cursor location.

NOTE: to draw a CIRCLE, hold the Shift key while you are moving the mouse.

  1. Enter a second point graphically with the mouse, or enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line, and the Circle or Ellipse will be added to the view.

After a Circle has been added, it can be moved, re-sized, formatted, etc. See the Edit Tools Overview topic for details.
