Alternately, you can simply use the "Ellipse" command (or tool icon).
Of course if you decide to break your ellipse and connect it to a polyline you won't be able to, since a broken ellipse is a spline.

But all hope is not lost!

On your command line just type in: pellipse ...and change it from 0 to 1.
Then when you draw an "ellipse", it will be a polyline representation of a true ellipse. The number of control points will vary depending on the aspect ratio of your "ellipse". But since it is now a polyline, you can break it and join it to any other polyline. Note that breaking a "pellipse" will usually give you an additional break, so you may need to "pedit" the "orphaned" portions back together.

Of course, a broken true ellipse may be joined to a spline.
