Dividing a circle into thirds..........
Sep 12, 2011

I need to divide this scale 3.5" circle into thirds. I am a Dunce and cannot figure out how to do it in PS. I found these instructions on an Adobe forum but I am unable to follow them. Here are the instructions:

1. Create a straight path at least as long as the radius starting at 0,0;
2. Select (one of) the Reference Point(s) in the Transform Palette yielding 0,0;
3. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+F and select 120 degrees, still in the Tranform Palette;
4. Repeat 2 and 3;
5. Create the circle and move the centre to 0,0;
6. Select all, Pathfinder> Divide, and Control+Shift+G to Ungroup.

I have included the circle I am trying to divide. Can someone help this old timer out by explaining how it is done? I use CS5.
