### How to define the length of a Polygon side

Posted:

**Mon Mar 11, 2019 10:49 pm**Operating system Windows 7

Qcad Version 3.21.2

I am having a problem setting the dimension of a polygon.

First I choose "Shape" from the tool bar

Next, Polygon (two points of a side)

Next, I choose 6 for the number of sides

Next, I click the mouse to position the point of the first side

Next I hit the space bar to access the command line

Next I type "@.75<0" (not entering the ")

The outcome is a six sided polygon with the side length of 1", not .75

I can complete a polygon with a .5" side by entering @.5<0 and get a length of .5"

But I have not been able to get a .75" sided polygon

What is wrong?
