LESSONS on Circles & Turns

What are the differences between the dotted-lined
elbow-circle symbols, and the ones that are not
the dotted-line?

ANSWER 0083:
The circles from the elbow can be written with either
the dotted-line version, or with the newer smooth-line
version. They mean the same thing. The dotted-lined
circles for elbow movement are the older symbols. They

a typeface or style difference. You are welcome to choose
either one, to write the same movement. This diagram
shows which symbols mean the same thing:
