How to (not) break a sketch by changing "view as radius/diameter"

Would like to show the slot's outer diameter ("outer pitch diameter + 2.5*module") also as a diameter, like the other dimensions.

Changing the viewing of a dimension should not change the sketch itself, right?

- right click on that dimension, > Display Options > Display as diameter

- save

What's going on here?


- changing the way a dimension is visually shown should not break the sketch, or even change it in any way


- changing breaks the sketch, and only the viewing by radius is a healthy option (note: press Ctrl-Q after reverting back to clear errors)
