Circular Layout - Macromedia Freehand

Here's a quick question for you Freehand experts out there. I want to layout several ovals shapes along a circular path. So that all the ovals are evenly spaced. There would be 46 ovals circling a single oval in the center. It could be done with two concentric circles around that single center oval. I then need to draw a bi-directional arrow between each oval in the concentric circles to the single center oval, without overlapping an oval or line. If one of you Wizards can help me with this one, I'd really appreciate it. Cheers, Rokit...

    Rokit,

    Check out the 'Mirror' tool under Xtra Tools. You can set to 'rotate' pick a number of copies, and set a centerpoint to distribute your selected object around that point.

    I'd use the Mirror tool, too. Depending on how you want the ovals to be
    aligned, it might be easier to construct the whole thing of perfect circles,
    in circular format. Group it all and then scale to desired oval shape.
