12.2.6. Edit Circles and Arcs

Guide circles can be modified in two ways: by adjusting their position or radius. To access the editing menu, simply click on the circle.
 
 
To move, select [Modify] - [Move] from the menu and click a new position.
 
 
By holding down the SHIFT key while clicking on the new position, you can create a duplicate of the circle at the new location, preserving the original circle.
 
To modify the radius, choose [Modify] - [Radius] from the menu and select the desired radius.
 
 
Hold down SHIFT if you want to create a copy (keeping the original circle).

An alternative method for moving a guide circle is to click on it with the left mouse button and drag it to the desired position. Additionally, holding down the SHIFT key while dragging allows you to create a new copy.
 
Drawing arcs and circles offer even more options for manipulation and editing.
 
 
Additionally, be aware that when you click on a drawing object (line, arc, or circle), it becomes active and displays handlebars.
 
By clicking and dragging these handlebars, you can move only the starting or ending point of an arc.
 
A single click on these handles will also reveal a pop-up menu containing frequently used functions.
 
 
By clicking on the central handle, you can adjust the radius of the circle or arc.
