Diameter with broken leader

In a general or partial/detailed view, how do you create a broken diameter
leader? Not the double arrow one but the sort of side shifted kind. Let's
see if this drawing helps..

Will someone help the poor innocent souls of the CAD community. please!!

thanks

RE: Diameter with broken leader

You are asking for a foreshortened radius dimension. I did a quick check in the PTC knowledge base and noticed it is a "what's new" item for Mildfire 5. We use 4 here, so if you have 5 you may be in luck.Otherwise the alternate technique is given in TAN 114578. I noticed foreshortened radii were asked for back in Pro/E 2001 and they finally have it available in MF5. I know foreshortened radii were available in Solidworks 2008.
