How to draw an arc slot?


I need to design a part that attaches to another part with two screws. One screw goes through a pivot hole, while the other screw must go through a curved slot to allow adjustment of the angle between the parts. I want the curved slot to be an arc centered on the first hole.

How can I do this? I have drawn two arcs using the Sweep Arc tool, and connected their ends using the Tangent Arc tool. But if I then try to select the enclosed space to pull into a slot, the entire object is selected.

What am I missing? How can I make a slot that is an arc?

Thanks for all advice.
