Angle dimension leaders

When inserting an angle dimension in a drawing, Is it possible to get solidworks to create a leader that is perpendicular to one of the edges automatically?

In order to accomplish this now, I have to manually sketch a leader line and then add the dimension. Is there a better way?

See the image attached to get an idea of what I mean.
