Smoothing out Arc Moves with Curve Follow

What is the best way to smooth out an arc move on Curve Follow Project, i have changed the set point spacing to reduce the size of the linear moves and this has helped but it has increased the length of the program. Can these be arc moves instead of linear moves?
It is not possible to convert a curve into arc movements (you should use G-code/APT or a CAM plugin instead).

However, you can reduce the density of points for generated programs by changing the Minimum step size for linear movements:
  1. Select Tools-Options
  2. Select the Program tab
  3. Increase the Minimum step size to 0.5 mm or more
