Dimension a sketched circle

Hi,

 

This probably seems trivial but here goes.

 

When in sketch mode when I sketch a circle and dimension it it defaults to a diameter dimension, when I draw an arc and dimension it it default to a radial dimension.

 

As I understand it these are the default settings.

 

However I would like to dimension a circle and have the dimension come up as a radius by default.

 

At present I can RMB on the dimension and change the 'show as' from diameter to radius.

 

Can I change a setting some where so it is shown as a radius by default, if so where do I go to change this setting.

 

Thanks
