Tangent Mates

Does anyone else have tangent mates that one day just decide to flip to the other side? It drives me insane when it happens. Is there any plans to get this sorted out Solidworks? For now I have to spend extra time putting reference planes in and using coincident mates on them.


Its bad enough when it happens on a model I'm working on, but I've also had it in the past when the factory has opened a drawing via e drawings for manufacturing and the mates have flipped. Thankfully the issue has always been caught before wasted production happens.
