Filet Tool - Possible bug?

Question

Does anyone know why the filet tool wouldn't work in a rotated plan?  I have 2 lines - trying to filet them at a 50' radius.  But they won't.   Lines are the same class, same design layer, they are at 0 elevation.....I copied the 2 lines into a new drawing and it works.  Thoughts?  I was working in a rotated plan.  BUT when I undid the rotate plan (set back to 0) the lines did filet.  Bug???  Or am I just missing some an unchecked box?

I've just tried what you describe and it works fine here. All I can think is the 50' radius is too great, but I'm clutching at straws. Why don't you post the file and see if it is the same on another machine?

It must be my computer.  When I try it in a new file - the filet is set way out in space in rotated view - but when I un-rotate it works.  See attached.  (the random filets were done in rotated view - but the one that is where it should be was done in an unrotated view.

Hi, well this is interesting, the fillet takes place but the lines don't extend to the new fillet.

Works fine with line & polylgon tools but not polyline tool.

From tech support on this issue:  In can be used on polylines, but only closed polylines. I am checking with our engineering team to get specific information on why it cannot be used with open polylines, but the reason lines work, is because then can only have two vertices and are never closed.
