I'm trying to work out the properties of an ellipse so that I know it's x and y extents.
Using the Complex Data Types, "ellipse radius" seems to give the maximum radius from the centre, but I don't know how to get the minimum radius.
When you select an ellipse, the status bar on screen shows the values for it - with the maximum radius first (though the icon shows a diameter), then what appears (from its icon) to be the minimum diameter (it equates to the Complex Data Types "ellipse value"). However, when I draw a line across the narrow width of the ellipse, it's length doesn't match this value.
What is this "ellipse value" and does it have a relationship to the minimum radius/dimeter? If not, how can the minimum radius or diameter be worked out?
