I`m trying to draw a circle between another circle and a rectangle with radiused ends. I`m using the tan tan radius option to draw a circle between these objects on their tangents. Nanocad draws the circle but its the wrong way up. I`m looking for a positive radius between the two objects - i.e the TOP of the circle being drawn to link the objects. However Nanaocad uses the BOTTOM of the circle so the radius is negative i.e the arc between the objects goes down instead of up. Not sure if that is clear. I can post the drawing if anyone wants to have a look. What I`n trying to achieve is in this Youtube video at about 8.13
