Fillet on the edges of a Linear Pattern
I'm trying to design a simple part which is configurable in multiple different configurations. The purpose of the part is to hold a specifiable number of pens and that number is used in a linear pattern feature. For example here is the part when set to 1:
This works fine, various configuration value changes work exactly as intended. But if I want to add a chamfer to the ends of the part I run into issues. Specifically I want to add one to the two curves at the left and right ends of the part. Adding the chamfer to the leftmost curve works fine as that one is part of the original part, but the right curve is part of the final instance of the linear pattern and therefore the curve differs whenever you change the number of instances. Therefore when you change the number of instances you'll end up with:
My question is, how do I achieve this chamfer while still retaining the functionality of the configurations.

Note, I'm very new to OnShape (or CAD in general) and the primary reason for me to make this part was to learn various features so if you happen to see any other mistake or have suggestions, I would be very appreciative.
