This relates to PCB arcs, however.....

Your answer of starting and ending at 90 degrees had me thinking, as I
normally start at 0 and end at 360 for circles.  I tried starting at 90 and
ending at 90, and Protel intervenes by "defaulting" it to a 0 to 360 degree
setting.  It seems that for any full circle, Protel changes the parameters
to 0 start - 360 end.

Anyway, that's a bit of trivia and off the schematic arc topic.

It's a nice day and it's home time.

Regards
Brendon.
