When set to [Truncate: First] the construct circular fillet command will not accept the second element if it is a reference file even though it does not need to be modified. If set to [Truncate: None] will place the fillet however the first element must then be manual modified.

Yes, I agreed with Andrew. I have also tested in various version, as far as in MS/J. Elements that appeared in references can be performed using "Construct Circular Fillet tool with Truncate (None). and here, the first element must then be manual modified . Work as designed.
Andrew Bell said:As the tool requires modification to at least one of the elements in this workflow it would not be able to use the referenced element as this is in a ReadOnly mode.
This may be a worked as designed but there is no technical reason why the second element can't be in a reference file. It is not being modify so the fact that its ReadOnly is irrelevant. It doesn't accept references file elements because of flawed logic in the programing.
I also see this as WAD. But it would be nice to truncate the first element to the second from a reference. Once the second element isn't modified. This one has my vote! Regards
