Drawing a three-quarter circle in Inkscape?


Question

I've been able to approximate a three-quarter circle in Inkscape using bezier curves, but is there a more precise way I can draw a three-quarter circle in Inkscape?

Accepted Answer

Use the circle tool to control-drag a uniform circle and once created, double click to edit and change the start and end angles to 90 and 0 (or 360) as in the image below.

If you want an outline, then add a stroke and remove the fill.

If you don't want the arms on the section either, then double click the shape and choose the middle circle tool in the toolbar

Done!

[note: If next time you draw a circle, you get a three quarter circle, click the right most circle tool in the toolbar for a normal circle]
