Why do I lose other dimensioning options when changing base dimension value in drawing

I am dimensioning a drawing. If I use the 'part value' then I have options to set other units, GDT, etc.

However if I change the dimension value resolution (in my example .714 -> .7140) then I lose all other options (they are all greyed out)

(FWIW I'm using the web app on Firefox)

    You should set the DP using the drop down to the right of the value. If you manually edit the value it is assuming you are overriding the value and it will set it as not to scale.
