Methods likes this Rounded corner shape with rounded sides Don't really work for triangle.

  • Can I change each corner handle length at the same time? – Michael Apr 21 at 16:19
  • Automatically? I don't think so. That's vector drawing. – Danielillo Apr 21 at 16:29
  • @Michael One would expect that selecting each point and then performing Transform Each would scale the Bézier handles relative to the individual points, but it does not. Here's how it should be. Oh well :-p – Mentalist Apr 22 at 5:13
  • @Michael Might be worthwhile having a look at Inkscape functionality shown here. It has a stars and polygon tool with live editable corners/curves that can be adjusted. Saved as SVG, the shapes could be then imported into Illustrator. – Billy Kerr Apr 22 at 15:39
