FS#2333 - Ordinate dimensions: scale option ignored

I’m having issues with ordinate dimensions on a DXF file that is not scale 1:1.

Running on Windows 10
Qcad/Cam Pro V

Here is my scenario;

Step 1; Import CAD file “ScaleTest1142022.DXF” which is scaled at 1:2 from the previous software (Solidworks).
Step 2; Clean up file, scale up to 1:1 and move to XY zero.
Step 3; Add horizontal or vertical dimensions, they are correct. If I do ordinate dimensions, they are double of what they should be.
Outside of block is 1.0” x 6.0”, but ordinates come up as 2.0” x 12.0” When adding ordinate dimensions, there is a scale dropdown option, changing this seems to have no effect on anything.
Going into drawing preferences, Dimension settings, the size scale factor is 1.

On these dimensions, the linear measurement factor is set to 2, and the dimension displayed is not double what it really should be. All other horizontal and vertical dimensions added have the linear measurement factor set to 1 and the dimensions are correct.

Is there a way to force the “LMF” to 1 always?
