When selecting the menu item Arc of a circle the cursor changes its form. After positioning the cursor on the desired starting position, clicking and holding the left mouse button and pulling, a arc of a circle (at an angle of 180°) is drawn within the frame in the grid setting.

If the element is opened upwards and right, the arc is shown opened upwards and left. When opened downward and left, the opening is shown to the right. If during the later editing an edge limit is moved over the other, the direction of opening changes (from top to bottom or vice versa). The changes in length and position are possible at any time. After releasing the left mouse button or after selecting the element, the properties are available in the properties window.
