Description

Draws a regular polygon inscribed in a construction geometry circle. When starting the tool, a box apears asking for the number of sides of the regular polygon. Once the OK button is pressed the mouse pointer changes to a white cross with a red hexagon icon. The coordinates of the pointer are shown beside it in blue in real time.

Usage

  1. After pressing the Sketcher CreateRegularPolygon.svg Create regular polygon button, define the number of sides of the polygon in the pop up box and confirm by pressing the OK button.
  2. Click once to set the center, then move the mouse and click a second time to set one of the vertices.
  3. Pressing Esc or clicking the right mouse button cancels the function.

Notes

The circumscribed circle is construction geometry, which is only visible when editing the sketch.
