Drawing Arc's? - Macromedia Freehand

I want to create corners for my web tables and want to use Freehand to create them. I started by drawing a circle with the ellipse tool but discovered I couldn't crop the circle to create a corner for saving as a gif file. Could some please advise how I should do this. Many thanks Graham. Uk...

    Look under the Xtra Tools for the Arc Tool. Double click on it to get
    it's options and select the style you want.

    In FHMX, you can draw an ellipse and turn off a portion of the ellipse to leave a specific arc. This can be done by selecting the arc and with the sub-select tool (ctrl-alt on PC) drag arc handles around the edge of the elipse. Or you can enter the start and stop points (in degrees) from the 'Object Properties' panel. You can also turn off the two radial lines coming from the center of the ellipse by unchecking the 'Closed' checkbox on that same panel, leaving just the arc, instead of a pie wedge.

    You were on the right track, just ungroup the circle and then cut it.

    Also you can make round cornered boxes and cut those.
