Dimensions Not Snapping to Snaps in Paperspace

I have just upgraded to 2013 from 2012. When dimensioning my viewports in paperspace, I will snap using the linear or aligned dimension and it will appear to snap to the first point, but when I snap on the other end, it will go somewhere way off the viewport or give me a "0" dim.


I've checked my snaps and other settings that I know of. 


Any thoughts?

If you are using associative dims and trying to dimension a 3D model, then see this post:


It appears that this is an "issue" in 2013

Turn off snap to "Insertion Point"  


Workflow will be much better with this off, otherwise things will go flying about.
