Overlap flange in sheet metal

I tried to create a overlap flange in sheet metal, but the result is not what I want as I cannot select the gap edge near the circle portion. Please help to check what is wrong? I attached the file here.

 

Thanks

Currently the curve is not supported to be selected for flange. When the edge is selected for flange in this case, the linear edge is selected, and the curve is not selected. So the result from flange should be proper in this case.

I believe it is giving the proper result. the first bend fot the overlap cannot start in a curved surface.
