I have a circular sketch. I would like to create a Linear Pattern that equally spaces the Number of Instances out from this circle instead of starting at this circle and going one direction. If I have an even number, then this circle would have to not be shown. Any suggestions?

Instead of setting up the plane tangent to the instance (since it won't switch to last instance when you change number), set up an equation for a distance value and use that for the plane.

For e.g. (Number of Instances -1) * Pattern Distance + radius of the circular feature.
