Measure tool now missing visual triangle legs between points (since service pack upgrade)

Good morning,

Not sure what category to put this in, but this is an annoying change since my last service pack update.  Prior to the update, whenever I'd use the measure tool to get distances within the model or assembly, SW would show all legs of the right triangle along with the corresponding dimensional value for the distance (see attached capture old.png).  Now I'm only seeing the hypotenuse distance between two given points / faces (capture.png).  I still have the x, y, z distances in the dialog box but it was nice to see them visually right on the screen, as opposed to looking in the dialog box and making sure I'm looking on the correct axis to get the measurement.  The only thing I can think of is recently upgrading from SW2010 SP0 to SP5.  I've attached two screenshots, one from the way it used to be and the current one I have now.  Maybe there is something that got turned off as far as a viewing option?  Thanks in advance.....:)
