I'm a little bit newbie to Illustrator, so sorry if my question is pretty banal.
Following art work is what I'd like to design:
This is the plan (that doesn't work!):
1 - Draw an empty circle with required stroke. (A ring, namely)
2 - Erase some part of that ring and divide to to four parts.
3 - Add arrow heads to both sides of each part.
My main problem is conversion of a circle to its corresponding ring. Here is a question, which might be similar to my problem, but it didn't work. I think I should transform the shape (circle) to a path, then it will become a ring and applying steps 2 and 3 would be possible. Even this video didn't help too much because I can't modify the tickness of the final ring by
Stroke > Weight
Could you give me some advice to find the steps?
