If you did not convert the polystar to a path they are still there. Drill down.
I have not converted the polystar to anything. Simply created it and drilled down into to edit it and I see no controls. Here is the list of what I see:
Transform: Polystar 1
See where is says Path 1.... That's a polystar converted to a bezier shape. It should say Polystar Path 1. You can do that accidentally by holding down the Alt/Option key when drawing out the polystar. Try creating a new one. The layer properties for each of these shape layers were revealed by pressing the U key twice to show all modified properties
Yes, that was my mistake. Thanks.
