When i make a circle, and i need to rotate it, it will scale ? I need it rotate at the same size circle. Whats the problem, layer settings are ok.

Sorry my bad english.

If you're rotating it with the camera, it will look like its changing size. In reality it isn't but the camera is moving a little back and forth that is if you use the orbit tool. You have to make the circle itself rotate manually. (pretty sure thats what it is).

There is a rotate tool, or you can click the layer, tap R on your keyboard, and then adjust the degree amount you want the layer as a whole to rotate.

That is the best way to rotate things...
