Why does this happen usin the measure tool

Can anyone give a suggestion on why this occasionally happens.


In one assembly when I use the Measure tool when I am near an edge or corner it highlights for an edge or a black dot appears for a corner up which makes it easier to see what I am selecting.


On another assembly the edge or corner don't highlight up and I have to click onto an edge or corner to be given a measurement.


The only difference I can see, is the one that doesn't highlight is an imported model (IFC file) and saved out as a SolidWorks Assembly.


Is their something in the save setting that I may have changed so edges or corner don't highlight up.
