You'll need to trace over the entire ellipse by creating one polyline. In Curves, Polyline...
- Rectangle should be toggled Off
- Closed should be toggled On
- Covered should be Off for Hatching (On for 3D Modeling)
- Object Snap to the endpoint of one of the arcs
- Select 2 Pt. Arc
- Object Snap to the center point of the arc you're about to draw
- Toggle Clockwise On or Off as needed
- Object Snap to the end point of the arc you're drawing
- You'll be prompted "Click center of arc"
- Continue by repeating these steps drawing four arcs until you get to the first point where you started
- Right-click to finish the polyline
- You should now have 1 elliptical-shaped polyline
