Sides prompt is disabled for the Polygon tool


#1

I would like to draw a triangle. When I click the Polygon button, the Sides prompt appears at the bottom of the screen. However, the Sides text box is disabled and I cannot change the default of 6 sides to 3.


#2

Don’t try to click in the text box.
Select the polygon tool, type in mid air 3 then hit enter. Now draw your triangle.

Thanks very much! I would have never thought of that - might be good to include that in the instructions.

Hi mdkimsey, hi folks.

Read the sixth bulleted paragraph in this help page:

I found it using measurement toolbar after using the Help Menu --> Knowledge Center

Just ideas.
