    Hmm .. I do not have any specific video about this. This has been changing a lot between Altium versions, so it really depends on what version you have.

    At AD20, you just click on a polygon, it should get selected. Hover cursor over edges and you can move them. If you need to add more corners, hover over edge, press CTRL and left click.

    This may help a little bit:

    Polygons are very annoying sometimes, I do not have any special technique for this, just, I try to draw them as the last objects on my PCB.

    3) I am not sure what you mean ... like pouring for example GND into empty space on your PCB? I do not normally do that.

        - I do not have any special tutorial about polygons, maybe this can help a little bit:

        - you can simply copy layout (CTRL+C & CTRL+V), but have a look at this video:
