Editing a Circle Entity

You can edit the radius of an Circle entity that does not yet bound a face by using the Move Tool. To edit an Circle entity:

  1. Select the Move Tool. The cursor will change to an four-way arrow.
  2. Move over the Circle entity to locate one of the four cardinal points of the Circle entity.
  3. Click and hold on the cardinal point of the Circle entity.
  4. Move the cursor to adjust the radius of the Circle entity.

You can also adjust the radius and number of segments using the Circle entity's Entity Infodialog box.

The inference engine sometimes can get distracted, preventing it from snapping to the center of a circle. You can encourage a center point inference by hovering the mouse cursor over the edges of the circle and then moving it towards the center point.
