Draw from Center-Point CS4
on Aug 16, 2009 at 10:26:05 am

Hello,

I've been trying to draw an ellipse from the centre point instead of the corner by pressing and holding Option (Alt) whilst dragging but it doesn't work? It just keeps drawing from the corner. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
Daniel

"To scale a circle, ellipse, square, rounded square, rectangle, or rounded rectangle around its center while drawing, hold the Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) key after you begin dragging. Don’t release the key until you have released the mouse button to finish drawing."

(from "Create a shape or mask by dragging with shape tools")
