You can change between the 'Snap' and 'Distance' buttons as required. If 'Snap' is selected any of the system Snaps can be used to specify the point to define the radius.

If 'Distance' is set the system displays a dynamic radial dimension, click in the drawing area to accept the current value. The increment of the dynamic dimension is controlled by the Linear 'Cursor increment'  settings in the Units settings. You can type the  blend size directly into the distance input box and the dynamic radial dimension will be frozen to reflect this value. Click anywhere in the drawing area to accept this value or click the lock button locked button to release the dimension.

After defining the size the blend will be drawn. Not trimming is performed by the blend command.
