Feature Control Frame don't snap to Datums

Creator
Creator

Recently we installed NX 11 and I have an issue in Drafting mode.

 

When I "Select Termination Object" for "Datum Feature Symbol" I can't snap "Feature Control Frame" into it.

If I remove "Select Termination Object" for Datum Feature Symbol then "Feature Control Frame" snaps without problem.

 

I didn't have this problem in NX 10. Any idea how to snap those two together?

Can you send a movie of what was possible in NX10 and what's not possible in NX11

I'll try to get some screen capture software, but it must be installed by IT.
Maybe picture will help to describe the issue.

The top three examples shows snapping.

I'm not sure if you can see the video. It shows me "Content Unavaliable", maybe the video is still processing on the web.

In NX 10, if you turn off the "align horizontal or vertical" option and turn on the "stack annotation" option, the FCF will stack with the datum target. In NX 11, it will not. This seems to be a regression; I'd suggest contacting GTAC for resolution.
