I want to create a loft from a rectangular surface with rounded corners to an "obround shape" directly above it. The only way I can even get it to create a loft is with the following options:

Note that it doesn't matter if "simplify surface" is checked or not.

Here's the twisted result I'm getting:

The really strange thing is that I'm simply re-creating a new sketch using the same steps I did on an older one where the loft worked.

I've tried drawing the "obround shape" manually with a rectangular box and two half circles with the same results. I then added a 3D drawing connecting the midpoints of the arcs and straight edges to the midpoints of the rectangle lines below them. I tried to select the 3D drawing as "guide curves" but the loft doesn't work at all then regardless of if I choose global, local or tangent.

Please help.
