Editing a polygon entity

You can edit the radius of a circle in which the polygon is inscribed, that does not yet bound a face, by using the move tool. To edit a Polygon entity:

  1. Select the Move tool (Move Tool). The cursor will change to a four-way arrow.
  2. Move over the Polygon entity to locate the midpoint of a side. At least one midpoint of the polygon will allow you to resize the entity.
  3. Click and hold on the midpoint of the Polygon entity.
  4. Move the cursor to adjust the radius of the Polygon entity. Click and hold on another midpoint if the polygon does not resize. Try each midpoint until you find the midpoint that will resize the entity.

You can also adjust the radius and number of segments using the Polygon entity's Entity Info dialog box.
