Up and Down arrows not working?

I remember this working with the polygon & star tool, but it doesn't see to b working now? Could there be any reasoning behind this?

Hi Audrey,

The "up" and "down" arrows should work as long as you keep pressing/holding the button of your mouse, while you click on the arrows and decide how you'd like to have your final shape.

The mouse button should have been pressed somewhere inside or outside the canvas to start drawing with that "polygon" or "star" tool you selected.

Once you decide how that certain "polygon" or "star" should look, you should release the mouse button and your shape shall have the arrangements done with the arrows.

Hope this helped.
