How to create a rounded edges like this In Illustrator CS6 (Example included) [duplicate]

Sorry for such a newbie question. I tried google but can’t find anything similar. I’m using Illustrator CS6 so I don’t have CC’s rounded corner tool. I tried Effects > Stylize > Round Corners but it doesn’t work.

Here’s what happens: (as you can see it distorts it)

enter image description here

I also tried applying a stroke to circle and removing the bottom half of circle then applying rounded caps to stroke but I don’t like the final result.

Here’s what I want to do.

This is what i have created by manually adjusting the corners using the pen tool but it looks pretty bad.


You should be able to do this by going to Effect → Stylize → Round Corners
(not sure why it doesn’t work)

There is a plugin from Astute Graphics* (they charge, but have a 14 day trial), which is very good – my personal favorite.

*I am not affiliated with Astute Graphics in any way
