Q - question

Connecting polylines by fillet - change in version 2012.

A - answer If you use FILLET to join a plain Line to an existing Polyline with varying widths of its segments, the resulting new segment takes over the global polyline width - in the version 2011.

In the version 2012, this process keeps the null width of the newly attached segment. If you need to maintain the older behaviour, use the more suitable command JOIN - this command will join both lines in the old way.
