How to draw a circle using Ellipse tool in Illustrator

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am using Adobe Illustrator. The problem is, when I try to make a circle using the Ellipse tool, the output shape is ellipse. Supposedly, the value of the circle’s width is 1inch. The height will automatically changes to 0.9852 inches.  I tried doing it by creating other shapes. But I could not make a perfect shape with its perfect sizes.  Can anyone please help me on this? How can I match or make the size evenly? (E.g. Circle: height=1.00inch width=1.00inch)
