Hi there

Im having difficulty in locating the PolyStar tool in the LHS Rectangular Toolbar.

While theres a dropdown arrow alongside the rectangle Icon, Im not left with any options, its Rectangle or nothing.

Ive clicked out of the Work area, out of textboxes etc, but still no PolyStar option available.

Thanks for your help

John in Mosgiel.

Hi. My version (Flash 8 Professional) has a Polystar tool in the Tools menu, right-hand column, fifth icon down. It is at the same point as the Rectangle tool - you simply toggle between the two. Not sure if this helps though - I've just re-read your post and it looks like you're in the right area, but can't find it. Have you tried online help?

Sweet, its there now, the secret is to Click & HOLD the mouse on the Rectangle for a second before the Polystar tool shows, I was double clicking...

Thanks

John.
