Default offset & fillet dimensions

josh_deetzjosh_deetz OS Professional Posts: 3 PRO
I often try to do an offset, and get the message "Offset cannot be created at this distance". But the problem is I cannot get to the point where I can actually change the dimension because the default dimension is unresolvable, so I cannot 'place' the offset and change the dimension. (Doing a reverse offset and then changing the dimension to be negative sometimes flips it back, but sometimes it cannot resolve either direction.)

Fillet in sketches has the same issue. I have a 1x1 cube, add a fillet, but it defaults to 5, so it cannot solve. 

Is there a way to change the default values, or a way to change the dimension before 'placing' the offset or fillet? I've tried everything, to no avail.

    Grab the handle and drag the fillet into possible range, then add exact value.

    Default values cannot be edited at the moment.
