An interactive example showing the start and end angle options of the ellipse function
This is an interactive example of the new ellipse function. By moving your mouse cursor around the center point (indicated by the black dot) the end angle of the ellipse (or arc) function will be adjusted. The start angle is always \ero - ie the "east" axis. The resulting code required to create the ellipse is shown too.
