Anyone know how to draw a circle with its center at the starting cursor location of the drag motion? It's given that the ellipse shape tool is chosen. Neither simultaneously depressing the shift or control key concurrent with the drag motion accomplishes this objective. Also, anyone know a simple way to draw concentric circles each of which has a randomly chosen diameter and varying stroke width? The polar grid tool isn't relevant to this objective.
Permutations and combinations! I tried concurrent alternate-control-drag and control-shift-drag but not shift-alternate-drag. Also, of which documentation do you speak? I downloaded the Illustrator CS5 User Manual and for drawing circles it refers the user to a video. Also, I'm actually using CS5.5. Thanks again. You've been helpful several times in the past.
