QUESTION 0022:
When do I write a circle and when do I write a curved
arrow?
ANSWER 0022:
Generally four curves make one circle. So usually a curved
arrow is one quarter of a circle.
There are definitely exceptions, and you are welcome
to write the curves in other configurations too. However,
in general four curves make one circle. A complete circle
is not written with curved arrows, but with circle symbols.

QUESTION 0024:
When do I write a circle and when do I write a curved
arrow?
ANSWER 0024:
Example 0024 shows that rotations are curves too, but
they do not travel. 
EXAMPLES
0024
Rotation symbols stay in one place and rotate in the
direction of the
curve. There are four possible rotations to a circle.
The line represents the axis around which the rotation
revolves. When you see a line going through the curved
arrow you know it is a rotation.
