I have a floor with a curved edge.  The center point of the curve is not inherently tied to a grid system.  I used "radial dimension" to show the radius of the curve.  Question:  how do I dimension to the center radius point of the curve, to locate this radius point in space relative to other objects?  I don't want to insert "fake" detail lines near the center point for the purpose of dimensioning to these lines - because the dimensions aren't "live."  See image attached.

So create a couple of ref.planes from the center of arc then you can Dim, then hide the ref planes.

Thanks for the response.  Only thing is that I don't think the reference planes can be locked to the center of the radius.  So if the curve changes, I have to go back and manually move the reference planes.  The reference planes seem to be basically acting the same as a detail drafted line in this case.
