Help, How do I draw a simple circle?
Select the tool indicated in the attached image (the ellipse tool). Then left-click in your workspace and drag while holding down the Ctrl key, which will force the ellipse you create to be a perfect circle.
Hoping to help,
Thank you, but unfortunately, I don't have anything that easy. Here is my screen. There is no ellipse button. This is driving me crazy.
You're in Painter, which is a raster program. To create vector objects (such as a perfect circle) you need to use a vector drawing program, like Corel Draw.
I can see that you have Corel Painter Essentials 4. This forum is for Corel Photo-Paint which is the reason for the confusion. Painter is a very different program...
I can see one thing you can try but I'm guessing since I don't have the program. I can see a control above your canvas that looks like a circle with a dashed outline. You can try selecting that and dragging out on your page. I bet it makes a mask, but if it does then you can probably paint on or fill the masked area.
Corel has another 'official' community forum like this one dedicated to Painter : http://painterfactory.com/ You'll probably get better help there.

My bad! I didn't notice that you had posted in the Photo Paint forum. Good luck finding a solution that meets your Painter needs.
