### vcb and circles

hi all again
is there a way to entering a diameter (not radius) when drawing a circle ?

If you are just too lazy to count the radius from the (known) diameter, you can type 1000/2 to get 500 for instance.

Gai's solution will work for integers. A better solution is to make sure one of the numbers you enter contains a .0 to make it a float. To follow his example, although it works in this case, you would change it to 1000/2.0.

As an example, entering 5/2 will give you a radius of 2.
Entering 5/2.0 will give you a radius of 2.5.

I don't know, Todd, I just entered 5/2 (without anything else) and it gave me exacly 2.500cm as a radius (I work in metric > centimetres > .000 precision )

Well then - that must have been fixed! Nevermind!

I should start working in metric.... its so much easier. My problem is I was raised around Carpentry and such so I learned everything in inches.

Anyways, thanks for the tip again Gaieus.

Todd, I don't know of any former glitches - I just tried it out (being kind and helpful) and to my greatest surprise it worked.
Hm...
