Hiya guys, i’m three days into the trial period. All the usual stupid problems where I can’t get things to work as the tutorials because I miss the small actions, but I’m impressed with what the software is capable of. I have though run into a problem that I just don’t seem to be able to find a solution to. Following a video the guy creates a 2d polygon and the uses the chamfer tool to put a chamfer on one corner. I can’t get this to work....really.... if I create the rectangle from straight lines it works fine but the rectangle tool won’t have it. I’ve also found playing around that the trim tool doesn’t work on it either. Is there somewhere where the rectangle can be made uneditable?

Hello

The rectangle can be created as a polygon or as individual lines. Loo k at the drop down at the top when you first activate the tool.

If you select your rectangle and all lines select it is a polygon.
