how do I edit a shape in illustrator? For example, from a square and I want to change it to a hexagon.I'm new to this. Usually I end up re-drawing again.

    There is no benefit in converting a square into a hexagon by modification ubless you have some unusual circumstance. But yeah you would inser two points and move all points... But its more work than redrawing – joojaa Jun 10 at 3:51
  • @joojaa That reads not just like an answer, but the answer. :) – Vincent Jun 10 at 11:11
  • Thank you. I just gave square as an example. But there are times when I do complex shapes and I need to edit them. I'm still new to inserting points and adjusting them. I took a course on Illustrator before and it was like a decade ago believe it or not. Before this, I used pages or keynote to draw. – Aishah Jun 11 at 7:38
