Polygon Properties
Right click on the Polygon Tool to open the Polygon Options window. The Option window only provides features that are available in the Property Bar, but there is a preview of the resulting polygon or star, which could save time. Also, setting properties in the Option box creates a default style, which can save time if you have many polygons or stars to create.
