Draws regular polygons, from 3 to 1,024 sides.
Note: This command draws regular polygons, where each side is the same length, and are made of polylines. To draw irregular polygons, use the Rectang or PLine commands.
Accessing the Command
command bar: polygon
alias: pol
menu bar: Draw  Polygon
ribbon: Draw  Draw  Polygons  Polygon
toolbar: Draw  Polygon 
: Polygon
Prompts you in the command bar:
Polygon: Set number of sides or [Width of line/Multiple polygons] <4>: (Specify the number of sides, press Enter for the default number of sides, or else enter an option)
This command draws polygons by several different methods:

Location of center point and the midpoint of a side; prompts you:
Specify by: Set center of polygon or [specify by Edge]: (Pick a point for the center)
Specify by: Select midpoint of side or [specify by Vertex]: (Pick a point at the midpoint of one side)
 Length of one edge by entering the E option:
First endpoint of edge: (Pick a point)
Second endpoint of edge: (Pick another point)

Location of center point and one vertex:
Specify by: Select midpoint of side or [specify by Vertex]: (Type V)
Specify by: Select vertex point or [specify by Side]: (Pick a point at what should be one of the vertices)

Description 
Number of sides 
Specifies the number of sides; enter a number between 3 and 1024. 
Multiple polygons 
Repeats the command to draw additional polygons. 
Width of line 
Specifies the width of the edge lines. 
Center of polygon 
Specifies the center point of the polygon. 
Midpoint of side 
Specifies the midpoint of one of the sides: The midpoint of the side determines the size and angle of the polygon. 
Edge 
Specifies the length of an edge; prompts you:
The length of the side determines the size and angle of the polygon. 
Vertex 
Specifies a vertex (corner of the polygon); prompts you: Select vertex point  (specify the vertex.) The location of the vertex determines the size and angle of the polygon.

Grips Editing
Polygons can be edited directly through grips:

Select the polygon. Notice that it has a square grip at each vertex and a triangular grip at the midpoint of each segment.

Drag a square grip to move a vertex.

Drag a triangular grip to move a segment.
Notice that the polygon is no longer regular.
