i'm sorry this is very premitive question, but i'm having hard time with rail bevel. i was doing tutorial for the room and i want to make a corniice(trim?) for the room. the direction says i have to use rail bevel and when i use it, it doesn't follow the line and make a circular shape.

can you tell me what's is wrong with this???

I am having a hard time following your spline. If I am I am also sure LW is as well. Think of the spline as a profile, like you do with the lathe tool.
If your trying to make an arc, instead of the spline you drew, use the disc tool. Kill the poly, delete 1/2 of the points, select the remaining half and create spline CREATE>CURVES>MORE>MAKE CURVE>MAKE OPEN CURVE (ctrl-p shortcut).
