Chapter 5. PATH CREATION TOOLS > Using the Polygon Tool

Using the Polygon Tool

There are two types of objects you can create with the Polygon tool: polygons and stars. Before you draw a polygon you have to set its attributes.

To set the attributes for a polygon:

1.
Double-click the Polygon tool in the Tools panel 17. This opens the Polygon Tool dialog box.

2.
If it is not already selected, choose Polygon from the Shape choices. The Polygon settings appear 18.

3.
Use the Number of Sides field or slider to enter the the number of sides for your polygon. The Preview Area shows a representation of the polygon.

4.
Click OK. The settings for the polygon are kept until the next time you change the dialog box.
