Change Star Shape, Part One

When you click-and-drag with the Star tool (nested under the Rectangle tool in the Toolbox) to create a star (duh), the distance between the outer radius (Radius 1) and inner radius (Radius 2) remains constant (Star 1). To experiment with the star shape, start to drag with the Star tool, then press-and-hold the Command key (PC: Control key). The inner radius will remain constant, so as you drag outward, you’ll create longer points on the star (Star 2). Keep in mind that from then on, every subsequent star will have the same relationship between the two radii. To change this, you’ll have to click once, enter a new value for Radius 2 and click OK (you can delete the star if you like).
