fillet tool behavior


I'm experiencing an unexpected behavior of the the Fillet tool.


Working in 2D Plan view, I try to fillet two lines and apparently nothing happens.

By trial and error, I've found that, if I switch to Orthogonal (view), or else zoom the view in or out, the fillet magically appears... but:

- the fillet is not selectable/editable in 2D Plan, but...

- if I switch to Ortogonal, I can edit the fillet, and switching back to 2D Plan the fillet is now selectable/editable.


BTW, I'd like to understand better how Planes work. I noticed that in the Object window, my lines are by default placed on the "3D" Plane, but I have also the opportunity to switch to "Screen" Plane.

If, before performing Fillet tool operation, I move my lines to Screen Plane, everything works as I'd expect, without problems.


Therefore my question is: how can I set by default to work on the Screen Plan instead of the 3D Plane?
