Scaling rounded corners in Illustrator


Question

Possible Duplicate:
How can I resize this object without distorting it ?

I've created a rounded-corner triangle in Illustrator by creating a triangle and then doing Effect>Stylize>Round Corners. Works great, except that the corners won't scale- No matter how small/big I make the triangle the corners always stay the same radius, whereas I want them to scale in proportion with the shape.

How do I take this shape and break it down into a normal, scalable path?

Thanks-

Select the triangle and go to "Object" -> "Expand Appearance."

Further to Jin's answer, you can maintain scaled appearance properties by checking the Scale Strokes & Effects box on the Transform palette.
