Hi,

I can see how we can edit co-ordinates of a polygon using Inspector. This is quite unwieldy, but better than nothing.
Am wondering if I have missed a way to do it with the mouse, or at least to select, (or even just see the highlighted point during Inspector fiddling)?

Extra question:
Can we edit a particular segment during it's life as a polygon, eg. change the segment from a line to a curve, spline etc? (or do we just explode and fiddle with the pieces, then rejoin using 'From curves polygon)

Cheers!

You turn on 'Edit->Show Points', select one of the small squares and move it with the gripper.

OK! Now I get it- the step I was missing was to use window selection to activate the point. (I was expecting to be able to click on the point to activate.) Now I know this everything will be much easier.
Thankyou heaps : )
