Summary: simple geometric shape, snapping and editing basics

Idea came from here, in an attemt to break down construction steps with inkscape just as any compass and ruler construction.

(Svg image hosted at openclipart, you can download and open the image in inkscape.)

Some hints for the used actions:

                              duplicate - Ctrl+D

                   grouping objects - Ctrl+G

                          ungrouping - Shift+Ctrl+G

   converting objects to guides - Shift+G

              fill and stroke panel - Shift+Ctrl+F

      align and distribute panel - Shift+Ctrl+A

                    flip horizontally - H

                        flip vertically - V

                       align rotation - hold Ctrl while rotating

                    deleting guides - by hovering over the node tool the guide while holding Delete

     deleting all guides at once - option in file menu since 0.91

I tried to follow but could not get past the second part. My star tool only draws stars and not polygons. What am I doing wrong? I have tried dragging with Ctrl, with shift, with tab. It always comes out a star.
