Wire Size Label bug

I seem to have discovered a bug with the wire size label.  If I edit the wire type so that a neutral is not required, the label stops showing the ground conductor size as well.  I can see it in the properties window, it shows the 3 hot sizes and the ground size, it just will not show up in the view.  Anyone have a suggestion to fix this, or seen this before?

I would make sure that "Share Neutral Conductor" and "Share Ground Conductor" are both unchecked for the wire type. The tag and Properties Palette should now show the correct number of conductors.

I just discovered that the wire size parameter in the power system properties shows the correct number of conductors, but the wire size parameter for the actual wire geometry only shows the hot conductors, if there is no neutral.  Hopefully someone else has seen this before, and has a solution.

Sorry, Chris.  I hadn't realized that you responded to my post.  Thank you very much, that solved the problem.  I hadn't realized that setting was available.
