How to close a polyline in 2D mode in Blender 2.8?


My goal is to draw a closed 2D polygon. I’ve been trying to use polyline for that, but I can’t seem to find the button or hotkey to close a polyline. I need for the first vertex to exactly match the last vertex, since in the end I want to export it as a list of vertices, where two consecutive vertices form an edge.

I’ve seen people referring to the Alt+C hotkey but it’s not working for me, in Blender 2.82.

Thank you

You are editing a Grease Pencil Object. You have to know that is not same thing that a mesh.
If you want to export that, you will have to do a conversion.

Alt C is hotkey used for Curve Objects. That is another type of objects.
To close a grease pencil object, you just have to quit Draw mode for Edit mode.
There, under Stroke menu, you will find Toggle Cyclic operator. You can also use Close using F as shortcut.
F can also be used if you are editing a mesh.
