    In 2D drawing, sometime I want to show Diameter, and sometime want to show Radius; but seems Alibre does not give you the choice which you want to show.

    If anyone know how to shift between Diameter or Radius,

    Make sure diametrical mode is set to 'Smart' in the drawing template - Alibre will use its best guess to decide which of Ø or R to offer. To force the other option hold down the Shift key when first applying the dimension to target feature.

    Dang, where is THAT in the help?

    I see that even works on arcs, such as what Solidworks does circular surfaces as.

    It should be postedHERE. But then someone has to actually look there to find it. I look thru some of the posts there and find a nugget once in a while.
