Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the startAngle property to create an arc shape from an oval graphic, or to cause the Oval paint tool to draw arcs.

Value:

The startAngle of a graphic is an integer between zero and 359.

By default, the startAngle property of a newly created graphic is zero.

Comments:

By default, ovals display their entire arc from zero to 360°, forming a complete oval. Use the startAngle and arcAngle properties to specify that only a portion of the oval, forming an arc, should be drawn.

The startAngle determines the starting point of the arc. The angleInDegrees zero is at the right edge, 3 o'clock. Increasing the angleInDegrees moves the starting point counter-clockwise around the arc.

The global setting of the arcAngle property controls the appearance of arcs drawn with the paint tools. Once a paint arc is drawn, its appearance cannot be changed by changing the global arcAngle property.

For a graphic oval, the angle is the same as the startAngle. Changing one changes the other.
