AC17 - weird new interior elevation naming behaviour

When placing interior elevations I use the single geometry method to place individual elevations not grouped. I give each a name like 'K 1', 'K 2' etc so each elevation has a different name and then use some autotext on the elevation to pick up the drawing name for the layout.

The new version is making it really difficult for me to change the name. It keeps defaulting to my first used one. See the attached screenshot that shows my settings dialogue has the name set as K 3 but in the interior elevations list it is still showing as K 1. (see screen capture 1) To get it to reset I have to go to the reference ID field and pick something new. This is painful when I have to do it for every elevation.

V12-V16 allowed me just to enter the new name, place the elevation then it was done and I didn't even have to use or have anything in the reference ID field.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?
