Why are there different commands for radial and diameter dimensions?  There should be a consolidated button.  A diameter should appear if the entity is a complete circle and default to a radial dimension if the entity is an arc segment with an additional toggle to convert from one to other if needed.

    @cyclonewade - We wanted to ship Drawings to you as quickly as possible, as we recognize it's very important functionality for everyone. Some of the difficult choices we made were to postpone some functionality for a bit.  In this case, it was faster to create multiple dimension tools, each that does a specific type of dimension.  But a smart dimension tool that enables you to create radial, diameter, linear and angular dimensions all with the one tool, much as our sketch dimension tool does, is very high on our list of things to do soon.
