DIM OFF not working on radial dimensions


I'm having problems with the DIM OFF value not being honored for radial dimensioning. I have tested it in a new/clean file. I am not able to grab the dimension value and move it anywhere other than completely outside of the dimension. Inside the dimension, it defaults to being centered along the radial dimension line. When I input a value (either +X or -X in the DIM OFF field of the OIP) the value is accepted but ignored. Any suggestions?

Update: If I drag the dimension text to the outside of the radius, I can then input a value in the DIM OFF field and it is honored. However, any change to the radius and the dimension text reverts back to centered inside. Annoying!
