Sketched lines are not staying coincident with sheetmetal bend lines after exit sketch

Hello everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone has ever seen this before. If it is a known issue with Solidworks or if I did something crazy. I have been creating sketches for months now on a sheet metal flat pattern and making lines coincident with the auto-generated bend lines. The purpose of this is so the cutting machine just etches an inch long line instead of the entire length of the part. 

 

So i started a sketch as usual, drew and dimensioned the lines as usual, and then when I exited the sketch, the lines just moved to seemingly random places. The size of this part was changed and extended from the original, but I have never had an issue with this before.

 

Anyone have any thoughts?
