Note: You cannot extrude, revolve, loft or perform similar 3D operations on Stellated polygons. You must explode them first.

Editing Stellated Polygons

You can use the Edit tool to re-arrange and modify a Stellated Polygon. To Edit a Stellated Polygon:

  1. Select the polygon.
  2. Right click, and select Edit Tool.
  3. Use the node to reshape the polygon.

Note: You cannot rotate a Stellated Polygon using the standard rotation handles of the Selector tool. You must use the rotation angle of the polygon itself. img
