Hi @Kristey ,

 

Do you see Dynamic input fields after you pick first corner of the rectangle?

I also noticed this symbol near crosshairs on your screenshot:

Do you see it all the time?

It means that ORTHO override is turned on - as if you pressed and held Shift key during you draw or edit something.
