Dimensioning a cylinder's diameter

Greeting all!
   I am in need of some help because every time I try to dimension a drawn cylinder to get the radius or the diameter nothing happens! I have tried local snaps of center and center extents. I am using turbocad 2018 deluxe. Smart dimensions work on 3D boxes just fine but then it comes to cylinders it just does nothing!
Please Help (All out of hair)

In the view and Workplane that show the cylinder as a circle, draw an actual 2D circle and dimension that. If the cylinder stands alone, you can snap to its COE to position the center of the circle; if not, use a 3-Point Circle, snapping to three vertices around the circumference. Place the circle an invisible Layer if you wish, or assign it an $INVISIBLE Pen Pattern.
