ORDINATE DIMENSION SCALE

This may not be possible but I will ask anyway. We have several cnc lathes and are constantly giving out lathe points (end of arcs, center of arcs etc...) Most of the time I use ordinate dimensions because they take up less space. When dimensioning along the axis this works great but when dimensioning the diameter SW shows the radius instead. The guys programming constantly have to multiply our dims x 2 to get the diameter which is what the machine wants. Using autocad I would just make a dimension style 2x for the diameter dimensions. Any thoughts?
