Polygon creation

Currently to define the number of sides for polygon we move the mouse to a direction until we get the number as shown below.


It requires some judgement to adjust the number, however I agree that it is not difficult once getting familiar with this tool. But I feel that it would be excellent if we could put numeric input just as we provide in offset.

    If you enter the number on the keypad during creation, it should change it to be that number.

    Works like a charm, even with two digit values up to 29. Thanks for the tip.

    Yes, after 29 there is some ambiguity as to what was entered.  We do not do one or two sided polygons so they can be used to prepend to a second keyboard stroke.
