    Select the option to "join" then choose which lines and arcs (ends must be touching) you wish to join up. If the operation is successful your multiple lines and arcs will be become one entity.

    Do they all have different elevations? You can't PEdit>Join lines on different elevation planes.

    I am drawing in the isometric grid, all the lines are in the same plane at the same height.

    basically i have plotted 4 circles, drawn tangent lines from circle to circle & trimmed the circles to end up with a rectangle with radius corners.
    hope this describes it ok

    After I press enter at this point, my command line says 
     
    0 segments added to polyline
     
    7 segments added to polyline
     
    Enter an option [Close/Open/Join/Width/Fit/Spline/Decurve/Ltype gen/Undo]:

    please see where I have added red text.

    They pretty well got the thing nailed down. But only thing I can think of is if you somehow got double lines. An out and back situation. The arc or line will then easier connect into the second line than to connect up the next line in a series. Thus you actually then are trying to connect in a line into the middle of one section, or you may be trying to connect in a rectangle to the figure. In either situation, it can't be done.

    Why not try drawing the rectangle first (remember to use OSnaps) then fillet the corners?
