Adjust the radius of arc with fixed end point

I found when changing the arc radius, the end points also move. In another CAD software I can change the radius with end point fixed. Is it possible in TurboCAD?

I have never liked the way arcs edit  in TC. If I know I am going to need to adjust the radius as you described I use a polyline.

You could try constraints but I find the extra effort isn't worth it.

How to use poly to draw and adjust an arc?

This is what I think a better way to edit arc

The current way of arc edit is pretty useless, it is even faster to draw a new arc than edit it.
