Is there any way of displaying the geodetic distance(ie "mapdist") with the dimension tool instead of the normal distance?

Whats the point of that? their different commands that do different things. If you just want a "mapdist" button to click so you don't have to type the command, thats possible through the CUI

How about using the MAPDIST distance in a label style in Civil3D. Can that be done?
