  • star tool adds too many points at once

    I'm using illustrator cs4. When I press the up and down arrow keys to add/subtract points to a star or polygon it adds/deletes several at once. I started with a 3 point star or polygon and it jumps to 18points. Is there a setting that i can tamper with? Ive never had this problem before.

    Don't know how to resolve that problem directly, but in the meantime you can click on the polygon tool, then click on the page. You'lll get a dialog box where you can enter the radius of the polygon and the number of sides. Hope that helps a little.

                    yea, it's the feeling of power that comes with the ban stick. The ego's are just a side affect.

                          Here at the GDF, we leave our eggos at the door.

                            I'm still waffling on that idea, Broacher.....

                              If you've looked into fair use and still don't know the answer, I would recommend you speak to a lawyer. If the artist asks you to take their work down, the polite thing to do is take it down. If, however,...
