Is there a simple way to convert circular curves into actual circles? I have an image with a lot of circles (visually) which are technically just curves. And I want to export this as SVG. Curves are converted to SVG paths and are much more elaborate (in terms of code) than circles, so I could have a much smaller file size if the circles would be exported as circles instead of paths. However, for that I need actual circle shapes in AD, so ideally I’d need some way to convert these curves to circles.

@VIPStephan Are your circles perfect? When I convert a circle (or any ellipse) to curves and export as a SVG, it comes back in (to AD) as an Ellipse shape (complete with the shape options available in the context tool section).

The SVG code ... "<ellipse cx="351.5" cy="379.5" rx="121.5" ry="81.5" "

....rather than i.e. "<path d="M351.5,298C418.558,298 476,334.519 476,379.5C476,424.481 418.558,461 351.5,461C284.442,461 230,424.481 230,379.5C230,334.519 284.442,298 351.5,298Z" "
