Driving the side of a curve

Hi,

 

I'm looking to create an equations driven sketch feature that will sometimes show up on one side or another of an axis/plane. The problem is that I can't find a way to explicitly make my arc stay on "the right side". I am attaching a simple part file with a sketch that exemplifies this. If I have a rectangular-like shape with an arc for one of the sides, then if D2 is toggled between something greater and smaller than D1 (flipping the sides) , then the direction of the arc is automatically flipped to the outside. How can I make the arc stay along the same edge of the "rectangle"?

 

Similar (same?) question: is there a way to toggle from the set of possible solutions to a series of dimensioned sketch features without triggering the overdefined/unsolvable function?

 

 

Thank you in advance
