Is this possible? The polygon tool always reverts to 6 sides, I would like to be able to change that and have whatever No. of sides I choose 'stick' until I decide to change it again.
Select the tool and click once on the artboard.
Or Option-Click the artboard with the tool selected
Or click-drag with the tool and hit the arow up and arrow down keys while dragging.
(all this works with all the shape tools, except the arrow keys. The arrow keys work for the Polygon, Star, and Flare Tools.)
Thanks Scott, don't know what I was doing before as the tool seemed to be stuck on 6 sides? But now it's holding my previous number (maybe option-clicking jolted it into the correct behaviour?). So thanks for that.
By the way, I would probably use your 3rd option but I use a Wacom Intuos 4 and it doesn't play nice with the up/down arrow keys in Illustrator (I do wish either Wacom or Adobe would sort this out as it seems it is a known and age old issue!!!)
