Simple Hole sketch dimensions in Equation Manager


I created a simple hole on a face of a block. I then created a dimension from an edge of the face to the center of the simple hole.

But the dimensions does not show in the Equation Manager.

Is this normal behavior? I am not a regular user of SolidWorks, so am I missing something?

I inserted exactly similar and similar dimension using Hole Wizard and Cut Extrude feature. But Equation Manager displays them. So, what's wrong with Simple Hole?

Also, do you use Simple Hole or use Hole Wizard / Cut Extrude instead of simple hole?

Thanks in advance for your responses.
