Extrude and Thicken to Solid

Extrude and Thicken to Solid

Extrude and Thicken to Solid

Dear All
I'm learning 3D and having problems with the Extrude and thicken to solid commands

1) A solid I can make from extrusion though unable to cut through it using a profile? If I redraw the 2D shape and thicken to solid this will then cut? why is this please.

2) Direction of Extrusion and thicken to solid. How can I control the direction arrows of the command. In an isometric view I'm using the RC shortcut to align my Acudraw compass orientation and tried all rotation shortcuts to see if I can pull the shape in different directions though the arrows don't change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
