FS#1615 - Decimal point of dimensions shown as '?', preferences page throws exception

First. I am not able to find OS selection for macOS Sierra so I choose Mac OS X.
I noticed that when I opened my drawing, I saw dimensions on drawing showed ‘156?6’ instead of ‘156.6’ in prior version I had installed. Probably in 3.16.5

So I opened Dimension Settings page to review and found when opening Dimension Settings under Drawing Preferences,
Dimension Settings does not show. It remains blank.

Then I clicked on other settings menu item from left and clicked back on the Dimension Settings I was able to see the Dimension setting.
However; when I closed the dialog and try to open the Dimension Settings again, I am not able to see the settings page at all. Just blank. I can see other settings page fine.

One time when I was able to see the Dimension Setting, I noticed that the Separator symbol was blank. So I updated that to ‘.’ and hit OK.
The drawing still shows ‘156?6’ instead of expected ‘156.6’.

It seems the separator symbol is not being saved for some reason.

I found work around to show the Dimension Setting page;
1) open Drawing Preferences
2) Click on 'Page Tags'
3) Click on 'Dimension Settings'

However, I am not able to apply any changes made to Dimension Settings. I tried changing Decimal separator , Font, etc but doesn't seem to apply when I click OK or Apply button
