temporary dimensions not showing on both directions

I'm placing lighting fixtures in an RCP, and after I place the light and select it, I only get temp dims in the vertical direction on screen, not the horizontal. Before I click to locate the object, the temp dims in both directions show up, but as soon as I click to place, only one tmep dim shows up.

 

If I place an aligned dimension from a wall face to the center of the light, and then selct the light, the dimension is not activated to adjust the distance. If I want to move the light, I have to drag it - I cannot input the distance into the dimension.

 

This makes trying to center a light in a room, or a set distance froma wall, next to impossible and extremely annoying and ecessively time comsuming.

 

Any ideas? Thanks. mpp

The issue is with the ceiling fan being placed on a sloped ceiling. The fan is vertical, but the ceilign is sloped, so for whatever reasoning I don't yet understand, even though I could place a dimension to the fixture, Revit won't allow me to edit it via the dimension. I had to place a reference plane in plane and align the fixture to the ref place, and then dimension it.
