i can only draw an arc clockwise

i can only draw an arc clockwise

searched but couldn't find something that's probably drop dead obvious

drawing arcs, using CSE or SCE, the arc will only draw clockwise. of course the arc segment i want is counter clockwise.

i can back door it but it's a lot of juggling.

RE: i can only draw an arc clockwise

Now that I think about it, I think I've run into this before too. I just draw a circle and then draw 2 lines to define the arc segment I want, then trim the circle. Maybe there is a setting in the Options menu that allows you to change it. Does it really matter which direction the arc goes in, as long as it the correct radius and lenght (included angle). Heck, just rotate it about the center point until it is where you want it.
