When you click on the button two things happen:

  • A little polygon appears near the cursor which means you are ready to sketch a polygon
  • Polygon window appears on the property manager and you can specify the number of the polygon’s sides

Click on the working area and specify the center of the polygon then drag the cursor and click again to specify the radius of the inner circle:
