Hi. I’m working on Linux in the latest nightly build of 5.99.

I’m not reporting this as a bug because it’s probably user error.
I have a track width of 2mm. I draw a track, deliberately making sure there’s a right angle.
It appears that the track contains 2 segments plus a couple of “blobs” at the corner. I select it all using “Select All”.
I select Fillet Track with a radius of 2mm and get the message “Unable to fillet the selected track segments”.
I suspect the problem is due to the “blobs” in the right-angle corner because when I can actually create a track without blobs the filletting works.
How can I avoid the blobs at the right angle corners? Is is something to do with the grid setting?
