> I want to make an octagon shaped icon. give me a clue what tool(s) to use

One way to make an octagon selection in 2 minutes:
1. Use rectangle select tool, set to fixed size and enter a size with 
equal sides to make square. Select a square.
2. Use rotate tool, set the object of transformation to Selection and 
rotate it by 45 degrees.
3. Use the rectangle tool with the same fixed size, set the mode to 
Intersect with the current selection (Ctrl+Shift)
4. Select the rectangle in the same position as the previous

Once you have the selection, you can stroke it or fill it with anything 
you want.
