When setting dimensions I have to click the screen for a dimension to randomly appear then drag it.  How do I change this back to default?

This occurs in parts and drawings.  When dimensioning, I used to click my first reference line/point and if there was a dimension to draw from my selection it would hover with my mouse and move with it across the screen.  If I clicked a second reference it would adjust and continue dragging around the screen until I clicked a third time to place the dimension.  Now when I try to set dimensions it does not show me any values until after the third click, when it sets it in a random location on my screen.  Then I can drag it around if I want to move it.  This didn't used to be the case.  It happened after opening a colleague's drawing and experiencing this on his drawing.  I thought it was his format so I tried looking in his settings to find a toggle option for this mode but gave up when I couldn't find it.  Now it's happening in new parts that I create so it's an issue.  What/where is the toggle for this setting, please?  Thanks.


Edit:  Also, now when I click on lines/entities I do not have the popup toolbar next to my pointer...  How can all this change by just opening one file from someone else?
