Weld Symbol Behaviour SW 2021

Has anyone else noticed that the weld symbol tool behaves rather differently in 2021 than it has previously.

It used to be that you could easily fill out all the appropriate info and simply apply the symbol where the arrow is required and you could wiggle/rotate the tail around to place where desired, then simply hit escape. Done.

Now... You can still easily fill out all the appropriate info and simply apply the symbol where thew arrow is required.

But, you can no longer simply wiggle/rotate the tail around to place where desired.

And, if you hit escape, or click "Ok", to close the dialog, the last (or first if only) weld symbol disappears.

You now need to apply " another" weld symbol somewhere else, anywhere random, it matters not because it will delete itself when the dialog box closes. And finally, Only NOW can the tail be moved/rotated to the desired position/location.

 

I reckon this is a pretty straightforward and easily replicated example of regressive behaviour.!

My question is... WHY..?.

 

Can anyone explain or refute this..?

Has anyone noticed this..? or, is mine broken somehow..?
