Drawing Inscribed Polygons

Use inscribed polygons when you want to specify the distance between the center of the polygon and each vertex. This distance is the radius of the circle within which the polygon is inscribed. In this example, you draw an inscribed square, the default polygon.

To draw an inscribed square

  1. From the Draw menu, choose Polygon.
  2. Enter 4 to specify four sides for the polygon.
  3. Specify the center point for the polygon (1).
  4. Enter i (Inscribed in Circle).
  5. Specify the radius (2).

Command line POLYGON
Related RECTANG creates polyline rectangles.
