    Can you identify the Smart Shape used in each of the above?
    Are there alternatives?

    No prizes, but your examples using no more than colour change and bevelling would be nice too.

    The first one is Star 1.
    Set to 7 points and an inner rounding that cannot be set to any value, only estimated.

    A Bevel of Point Frame 2 was applied.

    Finally, I went a bit edgy and added an slight Extrusion.
    I did this to demonstrate that Extrusions are effectively a destructive step.

    Note, the built-in Quickshapes tool for Starred shapes can only handle curved or pointed vertices; Star 1, at least can handled inner and outer rounding separately.

    @Xara - adding a Bevel to a Smart Shape creates a Bevel Group, where the Bevel and the Smart Shape (Star here) can be separately tuned.
    Can we not similarly have an Extrusion Group?

    But Gary there are seven more challenges.

    I felt having no reply after a year couldn't go unpassed.
