How do I draw an ellipse?

To draw an ellipse or oval:

  1. Using the Circle tool, draw a circle.
  2. Select the Scale tool, and then click the circle.
  3. A bounding box with eight green grips is displayed around the circle. Click one of the grips in the middle of one of the bounding box edges (not one of the corner grips), and then pull the grip out to form an ellipse from the circle.
