Filleting a rectangle

Filleting a rectangle

(OP)
I have a need to fillet many rectangles which I do with the fillet command, but it must be down one corner at a time. I once used a CAD system that gave a choice of filleting one corner or all at one step. I'm using ACAD 2008 on Windows 7 and have created many custom tool icons. I would like to either find a way to do this or create a tool for this purpose. Any Ideas?
Thanks.

Does your fillet command have the P option - if so then it will fillet all corners of a polygon. If your rectangles are polygons that is...

Yes and yes! It has the P option and it worked exactly as I wanted. Thanks. It's great to come on this site with questions, even simple ones. We all have different knowledge bases, many of us know much but not all and we can always help someone else.
Thanks again.

RE: Filleting a rectangle

RECTANGLE command used to have a "running" fillet option. Start the RECT command, notice on the Command Line all of the options for the rectangle, "FILLET" is one of them. Type "F", then it will ask for the radius and show the Default value. Whatever radius value you enter will be the Default value the next time you use the RECT command, so if you need to make a bunch with the same fillet, you don't have to re-enter it. All 4 corners will be the same radius, and the "From" point will be the projected sharp corner intersection point.
