apparent intersection not working

Is anyone having problems dimensioning to an apparent intersection in an IDW?

Once I hover over both lines to show the intersect and both line do intersect but it should turn green, it's not, it just keeps yellow.

It is placing the dim in the right place but it's also not drawing in the intersect lines.

It was working last month as I have a drawing to prove it.

This is on a few machines.

 

Also moving dimension is a problem. Sometimes they will not reattach after moving one end.

Not sure if this is related?

I've never had a green indicator at the apparent intersection-- it's only when both extensions appear at the same time with the little yellow dot.  But I don't know why the extension lines are not appearing, unless the distances are too small.  Can you post an example drawing that we can experiment with?
