    Dimension a sketched circle

    Mark Greenwell

      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
