Hey guys,

here you can see my sketch:

skizze_1.png

I want to make the circle bigger by draging it. I want to make it exactly that big, so that the circle intercepts with the end of the orange line, like the following sektch would show:

skizze_2.png

I did this sektch by changing the width [px] and height [px] values. But i do not want it like that. I want it to scale up by dragging. The problem: After making the circle bigger by dragging the outer ring of the circle, the position of the center of the circle changes. It does not stay at the same place. Is there any to do this?

Of course i could just change the height values, but i want the circle to overlap with the end of the line EXACTLY.
Greetings Spedex

Another way is drawing a temporary guide (dotted line) from the centre of the circle to the top of the vertical line.

 

Then – while smart guides are turned on – just select the circle, take the Scale tool, start dragging at point A (intersection of circle and dotted line) until you reach point B (upper point of the vertical line).

Spedex,

 

Smart Guides being your friends you can Select the circle, switch to the Scale Tool, Click somewhere on the upper right of the perimeter and ClickDrag to snap to the top Anchor Point, and while you stay within snapping distance press and hold Shift until you have let go of the mouse button.

 

Hi Carlos.

Are you sure that this will really work in this case, Jacob?

If you like you can, of course, duplicate the line segment, use the copy for the rotation, and delete when you have scaled the circle.

Thanks, Carlos. My main source of projects is mostly shut down, so I actually have time to think about stuff.
