Use the polygon bridge tool. New in v8. You can check the videos of the new features that show details of the tool.

do you mean just the brige tool? If so, it doesn't work.

You'll have to select the points and make two polys first. With the new poly creat tool, you can just loop select each set of points and press 'p', it should make the poly the right way around.

Once you have 2 polys, select them both and press 'l' and it should bridge between them.

Try selecting the points in the correct order then, pressing 'p'.

I t might have gotten confused with your particular model...
