Hi, 67.
The easiest way to make a triangle in Adobe Illustrator would be to hold the mouse down on the Rectangle tool in the tool sidebar (fourth one down in right row). Other options will come up. Choose the Polygon tool (fourth one over). Click on your page. A diolog box will come up--make it three sides, by whatever length you want (you can adust after you make it). It will draw a triangle for you......

Let me know if this helps!

Let's try it again, one step at a time-- did you hold the mouse down on the Rectangle Tool, and select the Polygon Tool? If you did, and then you simply clicked on your page (no drawing, no holding down and dragging, just a simple click) a box will come up asking you how many sides (three for a triangle) and what length the segments should be. Click OK and it draws the triangle for you...........
