    Dimension a sketched circle

    Mark Greenwell



      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.
