paste transformed - strange result if circle is not on middlepoint/center (by Susan3d)

2 Questions:

I have a plate with two circles. I have which is constraint between two angels (25 and 45"). This element I would like to copy 3 times.

When the circle is in the middlepoint/origin, I can use the "paste transformed" as expected, i can flip and rotate my copied element! Everything works :)

1 Qustion:
BUT with two circles (not centered to the origin) I got strange result and don't understand why? I tried "absolute pt" but this doesn't change anything? The copied element is somewhere pasted, see example data.

I also though I can use for this example (repeat rotating / shift+r) but this also delivers the result

Final Result with centered circle.
In the "circletest_working" file I selected the upper right element and "fliped" it. Then selected both and paste it 180°.

Thanks for your help

Attached is an alternative way of achieving your results. You can create a new sketch after you have created your construction geometry, which gives you a clean sketch to cut and paste, or as I would do it, create a rotational translate.

I like the idea with the new sketch and than link it to the main file.

With the rotational translate the angels got a little bit mixed up.

Thank you very much for your help

With step rotation, the angles between entities is even, and initially spread around 360 degrees. You can drag, or use constraints to evenly space the entities around any length arc of the circle.
