2014 diameter dimension not working

my 2014 inventor crashed and since then when I try to dimension a circle, I get a small "half circle" icon and it dimensions the half circle instead of a dimaeter or radius. Is there a setting that has changed when I crashed? I cant right click to get any dimension options. Anyone  have any ideas?


It seems that the diamter dimension works on other things. the part im trying to dimension is a frame generator part. I have dimensioned off of these with no problem.

To my knowledge there is no setting that controls this. Not sure if you tried deleting the feature in the model, then redoing it again. Then go back to the IDW to see if you can dimension the circle? If the IDW is only showing the "Arc" when being chosen for dimension then there is an issue with that particular feature. Try a new IDW too and place a new view to see if it works there?
