Creating circles and ellipses

To create an ellipse or circle:

Select the Ellipse Tool ("Shift + F4", or "L") from the main toolbar.

The Radius and diameter buttons on the InfoBar automatically create circles.



Bounds creation

Select the Radius option to draw circles. The start point of a drag determines the circle's center.

Select the Diameter option. Now the start point of a drag determines the position of the edge of the circle.

With the Bounds creation button selected, drag on the canvas to draw an ellipse. Hold down "Ctrl" while dragging to create a circle rather than an ellipse.

You can convert an ellipse into a circle at any time by double clicking on a control handle.
