Unable to fillet/chamfer

I recently purchased TFP 2017 for Windows and am unable to get the fillet tool to work.

I draw 4 standard connected 9' walls into a rectangle. I select one corner.
I click on the fillet tool and click on the selected corner. A pop-up says "Unable to
fillet corner. Fillets cannot be applied to this kind of object." I think I've followed
the video tutorial correctly, as well as the description in Pat G's TFP 2017
Training and Tutorials for Windows. What might I be doing wrong? How does
the fillet tool work? The same issue occurs with the chamfer tool.
 
Thanks.

PS: I also emailed this to support at imsidesign.com a week ago
with no response. Unsure if this email is correct.

Hi there,

As is stated in my eBook (page 173) the fillet corner tool can be used to curve the corners of a floor or deck. You can use this tool also with the shapes in the Detail tab.
The fillet corner tool can't be used to curve walls' corners => to create a curved corner in your walls you should use the curved wall tool (second tool in the Floor tab)

Whoopsie, my bad. Thanks for the quick help! Too bad the error message is not more
helpful, such as "This operation is supported only for floors and decks" (or something
like that.)

Hi there,

You're welcome!  :)

Actually, they are tools to "Editing Detail Shapes" (page 250 of the user guide), because you need to edit the shape in point mode so that works with the shapes in the detail tab, floors, freehand roofs, etc.
