One of the bad things about working with free software is that you are completely at the whim of the company providing the free software. Canva decided to change the shapes section by moving the adjustable triangles. The adjustable triangles can still be accessed but you have search for them now. The images below will detail how to find the adjustable triangles.

Image 1,2, & 3 shows the new triangles know as  "Equilateral Triangle" & "Right-angled Triangle". These triangles can only be resized not adjusted.
