I've been struggling to this for some time now and can't really find the answer on the web, but: sometimes when I want to set circle inside of an angle, it just throws it out on the wrong side. Like on the photo below: I wanted to insert circle between two lines and trim it (so it would look like red arc at the end), where I choose 2 lines (TTR command) where the green stars are, but the circle got dropped on the other side.

What's going wrong here, what's the matter? I had my mouse (while entering radius) on the right side of the vertical line.

  • $\begingroup$ I think you'll find that selecting your two tan lines in the opposite order will get it on the correct side. Also you may want to consider the fillet command as a shortcut, although it doesn't work with all object types. $\endgroup$ – Ethan48 Nov 6 '19 at 14:44
  • $\begingroup$ About first part of the comment: thank you, it might help. About second part: I thought fillet is for 3D only. $\endgroup$ – Jakey Nov 6 '19 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ Fillet works in 2d as well, but there are limitations on the types of objects. I think it's mainly splines that it won't do. $\endgroup$ – Ethan48 Nov 6 '19 at 16:33
