Smart Dimension Tool - Does Not Stay On

One of our users is having an issue where after creating a dimension either in a drawing or a sketch, the dimension tool turns off.  So this ends up the whole process of adding multiple dimensions:

  • Click Smart Dimension
  • Create a dimension between one or two elements
  • Click Smart Dimension
  • Create another dimension
  • Click Smart Dimension
  • ...and on and on

As you can imagine, this is rather maddening.  Is there a setting somewhere that we are missing to keep the dimension tool on after creating a dimension?

We are running SW2016 SP3, and instant 2D is turned off.
