Ellipse using SM

Is it possible to draw an ellipse using SM?
I am able to produce a hole in that shape, but struggling to draw an outside perimeter as an ellipse.

:/

Create ellipse as a hole how you have been doing it. Next use the "Edit" tab and then the "Trim" tab. You will find "Convert Holes" half way down. I prefer using "Windows". Use "Break Holes to Lines & Arcs" and select the "Delete Holes". Now window the the ellipse and select "Complete" at the top of the screen.
