CorelDRAW lets you draw polygons and
two types of stars: perfect and complex. Perfect stars are traditional-looking
stars and can have a fill applied to the entire star shape. Complex stars have
intersecting sides and produce original results with a fill applied.
Left to right: a polygon, a perfect star, and a complex star, each with a
fountain fill applied
You can modify polygons and stars. For example, you can change the number of
sides on a polygon or the number of points on a star, and you can sharpen the
points of a star. You can also use the Shape tool to reshape polygons and
complex stars, just as you would with any other curve object. For more
information about working with curve objects, see "Using curve objects." Perfect
stars can also be reshaped, but with some restrictions.
Select a polygon, type a value in
the Number of points or sides on polygon, star or complex
star box on the property bar, and press Enter.
Reshape a polygon into a star
Select a polygon, click the
and drag a node on the polygon until the star is the shape you want.
From left to right: The Shape tool was used to change a polygon into a star that
can be shaped as a curve object. The line segments of the star were then
converted to curves and adjusted to produce the starfish shape.
