Arc Elliptical Fixed Ratio
Creates an elliptical arc by specifying its aspect ratio - the ratio of the major axis to the minor axis. The axes of the ellipse are orthogonal.
- Enter the aspect ratio in the a:b ratio field on the Inspector Bar. (If you want to repeat this value later then lock it, otherwise the field reverts back to the default.)
- Select the center point of the ellipse.
- Move the mouse to size the ellipse. a:b = 0.5 a:b = 2.0
- A dotted line appears from the center point. Move the cursor to set the arc start angle, or enter the angle in the Inspector Bar.
- Move the cursor counterclockwise to draw the arc, or enter the end angle or arc length in the Inspector Bar.
