The Oval Tool is used to create ovals or circles within a drawing.
To use the tool, select it and then perform a Click/Drag combination at the point in the drawing panel where one of the bounding corners of the oval or circle should be. Drag in any direction and release the Click action where the other bounding corner should be.
Using the Oval Tool while holding down the Shift key allows for the creation of perfect circles by constraining the width and the height of the created object to equal values.
Note: An oval can also contain text. See the Handling Text section for additional details.
The Drawing Toolbar has been designed to intuitively adjust based on screen size and collapse similar tools together on smaller Mac screens. If tools have been placed in a selectable menu with the drawing toolbar, you will see a right-facing arrow in the bottom right corner of the tool button.
Perform an Extended Click to open up a pop-over menu and then Click on the desired tool to select it.
