How do you create regular polygons?


Recommended Posts

When using the tool it creates irregular polygons by default - so how do I get it to make all sides the same?

And - how do I create a hexagon? Do I modify a pentagon in some way?

Okay - I got it - but is this feature available on the iPad version?

 

 

 

 

Thanks

Is there a video on this?

 

Thanks

Set the number of sides to 6

In the iPad version, holding down a (second) finger elsewhere on the screen after starting to drag out the polygon will make it regular.

Perhaps a side trip to another, smaller room first is in order?
