    I'll have to give it a go in Illustrator and see how I get on.
    I've never really used Illustrator much. But, it seems that there's a 'curve' tool. That seems to make the job a lot easier.
    Thank You Rick.
    I know it's not all so easy like it looks.

    Wish all Xaraistas a great „Valentines Day!”

    If you look, you'll find that it exists everywhere in nature!

    Yaeh Rick,
    You'r so right.

    Everywhere we can see the golden ratio by fibonacci.
    The great masters of art in the mediavel created their arts on this rule. We also as Xara-artists may think about this and bring it in our art.

    Hi, Ernie.

    I'm not sure if anyone else is interested, but, it would be great for me if you did a video tutorial in Illustrator.
    That shows how to 'snap to objects' and other useful features that would come in handy.

    Whatever options you have selected in this tutorial https://vimeo.com/46122411 clearly are not the options I have selected in my Illustrator.

    I hope all that made sense, and you could post it in the 'Graphics Gallery' in the Non-Xara Galleries forum.

    Hi, Rick,
    I would like to record the tuturial again if I would call Adobe products my own.
    I have cancelled Adobe and do not want to install a demo version. I sold the CS3-6 versions.

    For the tutorial on vimeo I used the smart guides and the arc tool, I can still remember that.

    Aha!
    Yes. Smart Guides is the answer.
    Thanks, Ernie.

    Rik, I'm fascinated with your quest to learn about such things as Fibonacci spirals - are you doing a design course?

    Other than what I've read here on the TG forum, I don't know much about it (Fibonacci spirals etc), but now plan to learn more! I found this link which I thought might be useful for further investigation into the subject:

    Hi Jono.

    No. I'm no doing a design course. Never been on one and if I do need help, well... there are a lot of experts on TG who will willingly help anyone with anything.

    I posted this thread here, because, the only way I could think of making it, was to use quarter circles. Which was also what Gary Priester suggested.

    I was wondering what other ways were there to draw this curve.
    So, that's why the Fibonacci Curve.
