Measuring In eDrawings 2016

We have recently upgraded to 2016 (after having to wait for our CAM software to catch up) We have two PC's on the factory floor which use eDrawings to measure Solidworks files created here in the the design office. Before upgrading and since 2007 there was never an issue in measuring any part or assembly from solidworks. Now however after upgrading the factory floor are only able to measure anything that has been saved as an .easm file and enabling the "Okay to measure this eDrawings file" tick box in options. Has anybody else had this problem? Is there something that has switched off by default or is this now how it is in 2016. I must admit having to save every part or assembly as an .easm file and having to tick the option to measure so others can is already proving a to be a real pain. I'm hoping there is a simple solution and it's just something I'm not aware of.
