Dear All,

This may be dumb question. So pardon my ignorance.

I have two circle in a sketch with relation as shown in this picture.

Now I am trying give tangent relation between two circle.

Why does solidworks always trying to make the tangent relation to nearest point? 

Is there any option to make a tangent relation to farthest end?

Tangent relation between two circles

I know we can achieve this, if we make the Circle 1 to be larger than Circle 2.

But my initial sketch condition is, Circle 1 will always be smaller than Circle 2.

So please share your comments or answer.
