How to create a circular diagram with Illustrator
I need help to create a circular diagram in Illustrator like this.
I need precisely to represent a percentage. How to do that ?
in Illustrator CC-2014:
Create the circle:
Apply the stroke with the desired fill color:
Place guides in the center:
Copy circle and apply it to a new layer with
Edit -> Paste in Place.
Layer 1 and select
Line Segment Tool and hold down the shift and drag the length in the center:
Align panel and select the dragged line and circle:
Copy and paste in place a new line segment than rotate it with the rotate tool and it will tell you the percentage of rotation:
Select just the line segments and go to
pathfinder and click outline then delete the bottom two anchor points with the
direct selection tool:
Select everything on
Layer 2 and click the outline again and delete all unneeded anchors with the
Direct Selection Tool:
You should be left with 15% of the circle.
