I'm not sure if anyone else has had this experience yet, but I used to be able to set up my polygon shape tool as a way to make a perspective tool. It used to be able to act as a vanishing point that then had all these lines that would come from it. With the newest interface, when I went to the polygon shape tool the UI for it changed completely? I'm not sure what I'm mean to do with the new UI to make it work? The help would be greatly appreciated as this is a tool which is extremely vital to my work.

 

I attached images comparing the UI that showed up for it below! The one on the left should be the new one then on the right the old.

Can you post an example of how you used the previous Polygon Shape Tool?

So if I selected the tool with the settings you see above and then draw out the shape, it would look something like this test 1.PNG

 and then I gave an example of it being used with my work

Ah! Thank you for showing that! I'm really sorry about the hassle, but I'm on a Windows PC and for some reason, my properties look different to yours? I'm not sure how to access that specific appearance thing

I was wondering though if you know how to keep it that way? I'm messing with it now and it seems to be a one-time thing?

Yeah it seems like the settings in the Properties panel aren't sticky.

 

You can however do the same settings in the tool options and they are sticky.
