Indications for horizontal, somersault and cartwheel circular paths that relate to the dimensions, such as those in Ex. 1-3, are well established.
Signs for circular paths that relate to the diagonals are also needed. A suggestion for such indications is given in Ann Hutchinson Guest and Jouke Kolff, Advanced Labanotation: Spatial Variations, 2002, p. 256. The signs are shown here below.
The path signs that relate to the dimensions all have generic indications, e.g., a clockwise or counterclockwise horizontal circular path (Ex. 8). I think it would be useful to also have generic indications for the diagonal circular path signs. For instance, Ex. 9 could indicate circling forward or backward around the right-forward/left backward diagonal, and Ex. 10 could indicate circling forward or backward around the left-forward/right-backward diagonal.
