Diameter dimension as default for circles.

Hi

I have weak dimensions turned off.

I find it annoying in sketching, when you attached a dimension to a circle, it defaults to radius.

It would be more intuitive to have it default to radius dimension for arcs only.

 

Anyone agree?

 

Any way to set this functionality?

 

Cheers!

Re: Diameter dimension as default for circles.

Hi. Click once on the circle to create a radius dimension. Double click to create a diameter dimension. Does that help, or did I misunderstand your issue?

Turn on weak dimensions.

When I create a circle in sketch, it comes in with the diameter.

Oh, turning off weak dimensions is bad. The underlying dimension is still there, just hidden.

It's your hint there is something missing or not constrained correctly. Usually not a problem with simple stuff but anything with complication, not seeing the weak dimensions may be the difference between a usuable part and scrap.

Bingo Pettersson! That's the secret trick I wanted.
