Circles, Ellipses & Arcs

Once defined, these become lines connecting lots of vertices, making it difficult to edit/reposition them.
It would be nice if they could be defined and edited with reference to their key parameters only, e.g.
circle: centre position & radius; three points on circumference
arc: centre position, radius, start & end angles; the two end points & one intermediate point on the arc
ellipse: centre point, semi-major & semi-minor axes, major axis orientation

    Thanks for the suggestion, this is something I can consider adding support for in a future release. For now, I would suggest using the 'Create Arc Shape' option to create a 360 degree arc (i.e a circle) with a manually entered radius to get exactly what you need.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
