This arc is defined by its centre of curvature and its two end points.

 

Drawing The Arc

 

Click AND HOLD the left mouse button – this defines the centre of curvature.
Move the mouse (while holding the button) to one end of your arc.  While you are moving the mouse, FX Draw will draw a light grey circle showing the current radius of the arc.

Click the mouse button when you are at the other end of the arc.

 

 

Minor and Major Arcs

 

If you select a centre/two ends arc, you will notice that there is an extra point on the arc.  A point you didn't define.

FX Draw automatically generates this point so it can be sure about which side of the arc to shade - the minor or major side.  You can move this point and change the side to suit yourself.
