Coordinate Dimension Jog After Placing

I'm having problems adding a jog in a coordinate dimension after placing the dimension. I can add the jog while placing the dimension but not after placing it. The help files says "You can also use the Select Tool to add or remove a jog on an existing coordinate dimension by holding the Alt key." but that doesn't work for me. Is this a bug in the program or an error in the help file?

Thanks.

The process is:
Select the Dimension line
While holding the ALT key, select point where you want the jog (two handle points created)
Release the ALT key
Drag 2nd handle point to desired jog location

Thanks,

Thank you. It works for me now. I think I was holding down the ALT key when I first selected the dimension line and that was what was screwing me up.

In Solid Edge ST8 the correct command sequence is 

1) hold the ALT key

2) double click the dimension witness line

Then you can move the jog or dimension text to the position you desire.
