regular polygon graphic that I had exported into a scrolling list field.
But when I selected 'Polygon Graphic' from the Menu/Object/New
(Mac OS 10.7.5: yeah, yeah, I know, 'tisn't supported for LC 9: go and
try it on a newer Mac running
Mac OS Rocky Mountain) and no polygon graphic appeared on my stack.
To contextualise this: there is no problem if I select 'regualr polygon
