Right now there is no motion path. So, for now you have to animate manually. I have created several animations for chemistry for atoms with electrons moving in circles and it looks fine. Good luck.
Thank you for info, do you know any tutorial to move an opject in a circle - not in a line?
Thank you for helping
Otherwise, you could create a symbol where you could move your object in a circle using x and y.
Not with a motion path but it can be done quite simple:
Put the object you want to rotate on the stage.
Transform the origin of the object. You will see its center point move outside the object.
Move the object, so that the center point is in the middle of the desired rotation.
Now you only need to animate the rotation of the object and it will move circular.
With a little modification of this technique you can also get all kinds of ellyptical movements with just a few clicks.
Bittaner, rotation and moving an object in circle are two different things. I think that Stevanoo wants to move something in a circle - little the electron moves in a circular layer or the earth moves around the sun.

If you were right, the example below won't work ;-)
Rotation is rotating an object around its origin. If the origin is outside the object, it moves in a circle.
Here is the example: http://mcmm.com/edge/circular/circular.html
It has been done like in my description above.
All objects in the example are simply animated with rotation. The earth rotates around its origin and the planets do the same.
The only difference between earth and planets is that the earth has its origin untouched while the planets have their origin outside.
I have to admit that I did not think about that and it is a great idea which I will use in the future!
