Distance from parent formatting does not work from Central Topic

When using the Format Topic/Distance from parent functionality in MindManager 18 there appears to be a bug.

If I have a Main Topic selected and perform this act, it increases/decreases the distance between the Main Topic and Sub-Topics as expected when I press the Apply button.

If I do this on the Central Topic, changing the values does not make any difference to the Main Topic distance when I press Apply or OK.

The only time this takes affect is when you then apply the Balance Map command or the Reset all Topic Poisitions command. Using either of these the Main Topics reposition themselves to the desired distance.

Am I expecting something I shouldn't?

I have not yet checked this in earlier versions.

There always were a few formatting options that didn't take effect even after pressing Apply.
