I am facing a difficulty making a circular shape in Illustrator. When I duplicate a given shape in circular design and make as many duplicates as required, the last object stands out. I have tried arranging the shape to go backward and the next objects come forwards. But to no avail. Please help.

See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Welcome to GDSE. An image might help explain what your problem is. Could you also explain a bit more about what functions you used to do the duplication? Thanks! – Vincent Feb 17 '14 at 11:57
Am i right in guessing that what you mean is not problems with circles as such; but that you want your duplicates to arrange behind each other, rather than in front? – Benteh Feb 17 '14 at 14:21
Could use a blend and simply reverse the spine.. but without an example it's really impossible to tell. – Scott Feb 17 '14 at 20:04

Instead of pushing the last object backwards, pull the first object all the way forwards, to the front.

Use SHIFT + Ctr + ]

Or in Menus with mouse:

Object > Arrange > Bring to Front

I think you're pushing the last object back one position at a time, but that will take too long when you have many objects arranged in a circle.
