The "Foreshortened" method is per ASME standards and is newer functionality. Personally, I love it. However, you can use the older method if you choose.
If you are have problems getting the dimension itself into the detail view, then use the old method of getting it there. Simply enlarge your detail view (by expanding the detail circle) until the geometry for the dimension is exposed. At this point, you should be able to Shift-Select the dimension in the section view and drag it to the detail view. Once the dimension is in place, reset your detail view back to its original size and then modify the display of your dimension and/or extension lines. You should be able to RMB on an extension line and choose Hide.
