SW prompts for diameter dimension before placing circle sketch

When I start a circle sketch, I like to manually drag a circle out to a size that is almost what I want, and then smart dimension it.

 

But for a while now, when trying to do this, clicking the center of the circle to begin the sketch just highlights this textbox (seen in the middle of the screw head screenshot), wanting me to enter the dimension right away. Often it will not let me drag out the circle, because you cannot click outside of the box to clear it (and mousing outside of the textbox does not force it to hide), and I have to hit ESC to start a new circle altogether.

 

I am fairly sure I turned this feature on last year to test it, but I am ready to turn it back off, if someone knows where the setting is hiding.
