I have a project in which I need a star shape with several points—easy. But I also need the points of the star to “wave” like sun rays. 

I know I can convert to curves and individually add nodes to each of the points, and then “bend” the lines to create the wavy rays. 

I want to know if there’s a way to create those rays universally—in other words, editing one star point edits every star point. Is this possible?

Make each ray a wedge shape that will be a ray from the center of the star to the ray tip. Make that a symbol. Duplicate the symbol, and rotate around to make the star. Then, if you edit the curve within the symbol, all the duplicate curves will be changed together.
