CHANGING ARC (3 PT) FACING DIRECTION?

N/A

When drawing a 3pt arc, the starting point seemly determines the default direction
in which the arc will face. How do I get it to reverse direction? I tried pressing
Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Space, even Ctrl/Alt. None of these worked. Many times I have
the start point fixed by another element but not the end point. Also when drawing
something that is symetrical with an arc facing one direction and the mirror image
arc facing the other direction.
Thanks

Not sure I understand your problem. When using a 3 point arc, you can
either select the startpoint and endpoints of the arc and then the third
point which determines the arcs radius and direction, or you can select the
starting point then another point along the radius of the arc and then the
endpoint. All of them allow you to control the direction of the arc based
on the middle point.
