General Usage Instructions

Basic Usage:

The Layer list will default to “circle’s current layer” which will place the converted donut on the same layer as the selected circle(s). To place output on a different layer, select an existing layer from the list and the donut will be placed on the layer selected.

 Pick one of the three radio buttons for the donut alignment with the original circle.

1.     Pick the Donut Centered on Circle radio button to center the donut using selected circle(s) ‘center point’

2.     Pick the Donut Inside Circle radio button to inscribe the created donut within the selected circle(s).

3.     Pick the Donut Outside Circle radio button to circumscribe the created donut from outside of the selected circle(s).

Pick the O Inner Diameter Donut radio button to place a donut with an inner diameter of zero and an outer diameter the same as the circles’ diameter (create a filled donut).

Use the Donut Width edit box to set a value for the donut width or leave at 0.000 for no width.

Use the Delete Circles After Converting check box to delete the original circles after converting these to donuts.

Use the Tag for Conversion to Circles check box to tag the newly created donuts for later automatic conversion back to circles.  Then use the Convert Back to Circles button to convert tagged donuts back to circles.

Pick the Convert button to pick circles not part of a block or pick the Convert Circle in Block button to convert circles that are part of a block (Dynamic Blocks not supported).

If one picks Convert, a prompt appears:

PROMPT: Select objects: Pick single or multiple donut objects (pick or window) and press <Enter> when done selecting. A response will appear xx Circles converted to donuts when the circles are converted.

If one picks the Convert Circle in Block button:

PROMPT: Select object: You may convert multiple circles but may only pick one circle at a time, and you cannot window select several blocks together. After picking the circle(s) in a block, press <Enter> when done selecting. A response will appear xx Circles converted to donuts when the circles are converted.
