Ordinate dimensioning and fillets

1- I was wondering if anyone else uses ordinate dimensioning a lot and, if so, how you handle fillets. I have a flat pattern for a steel part that has corners filleted and I'm not really sure if I should dimension the center for the fillet or to the tangent edges or virtual sharps. I'm sure this varies from company to company and person to person but does anyone have a suggestion as to approach this?


2- Also someone told me that dimensioning to tangent edges is not going to be useful for the fabricator, but I failed to understand why?
