Alternate Units Placement Issue

Using AutoCAD 2013, I have set my the placement of the alternate units to "Below primary value" (in Dimension Style), but they do not go underneath, they remain after the primary units. I tested in 2012, and it works fine there but not in 2013.

 

Anyone else have this issue? Any solutions (besides using 2012, ofcourse)?

 

Thanks,

 

Peter

I've tested it here as well and it also works as expected in 2013. Could you try it with a brand new blank drawing and brand new DimStyle? It's possible either the current file or current dimstyle could have some corruption, causing it to not work. It appears the functionality itself is not broken in 2013 though.

2013 here, it works as expected with alt value below dim line.

Good Call... works fine if i make a new DimStyle. Something must have gone funny during the mirgation from 2012. Thanks for the help.
