I am using adobe Illustrator CC 2018. I have a circle and I want to create a rectangle inside the circle without getting outside of the circle borders.

Get rid of the selected parts

(Delete selected parts)

Thank you in advance.

    @Danielillo I don’t think it’s a duplicate at all. As I read this question, Omer is looking for how to inscribe a rectangle. I think dragging from the center of the circle to draw the rectangle while holding down the Alt key is all that is needed. – Wildcard Apr 26 '19 at 10:11
  • @Wildcard I see, I read it wrong – user120647 Apr 26 '19 at 10:13
  • ill add a comment with pic and it will be more clear – Omer Apr 26 '19 at 10:54
  • @Danielillo I added an image – Omer Apr 26 '19 at 10:57

    Ok, I go back to the duplicate I putted before graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/q/18488/120647 – user120647 Apr 26 '19 at 11:18
  1. Draw the circle and square then select both shapes. Do a Ctrl+C if you need to keep these shapes after the next step.
  2. Open up the 'Window → Pathfinder' panel and click the 'Intersect' button. This will permanently damage both original shapes, but you can now bring them back by doing a Ctrl+F (paste in place).

  • Not what I meant but thank you, – Omer Apr 26 '19 at 10:57
  • I added a image to explain – Omer Apr 26 '19 at 10:57
  • Use exclude instead of intersect on the pathfinder panel, then ungroup the resulting shape and delete the bits that you don't want. – superluminal Jan 21 '20 at 19:38
