Smart Dimensioning Behavior

Hi, this might be as simple as a setting somewhere, but I have a question about the Smart Dimensioning tool.

Usually, if i click a line, the dimension pops up and follows my mouse until I place it.

Similarly, if I were to dimension between 2 lines, I'd click the first (and the length of that line would follow my mouse) and then I click the second, and the distance follows my mouse until I place it.

 

I'm using 2012 now, and nothing shows up with my pointer.  I have to click and place the dimension before I can see what it is.  I mean, this is something minor, but it's pretty annoying.  Is there a way to revert this behavior to what I'm used to?

 

Thanks
