    I'm creating some interface elements for a university project and i want to use the"polar grid" and "star" tool's (which Ive seen used in many web tutorials) yet i cant find them anywhere on the tool menu and searching in the help box doesn't bring anything up either.

    I'm running the CS3 Design Standard - Student Edition - and was wondering if because it's the student edition it doesn't include those tools, yet i cant find any information relating to that on the web searches i've done.


    My first post so im hoping for lots of lovely people to help me out :p

    edit: for some reason the thread title decided to remove the word "star" from after the & :/ ......should say:

    The Star Tool is under the Rectangle tool. Click and hold on that button until it expands. The grid tools are under the Line Segment tool.

    Thanks, I thought it would be hiding under there but couldn't figure out why the tools wouldn't expand, i expected it to work like Photoshop :D
