To Place an Ellipse by Edge Points
Select the Place Ellipse tool ( split button
- In the tool settings window, set Method to Edge.
Enter a data point to define one end of the primary axis.
If Primary, Secondary, and Rotation are on, the ellipse is placed.
If necessary, enter a second data point to define another point on the ellipse.
If either combination of constraints is on, the ellipse is placed:
— Primary or Secondary, and Rotation
— Primary and Secondary
If the pointer is moved to a point that cannot be on an ellipse that includes the points defined in steps 3 or 4, the dynamics disappear.
- If necessary, enter a third data point to define the other end of the primary axis.
