Not able to create aligned dimensions in assembly layout sketch.

I'm drawing the layout sketch of my assembly on a plane. The plane is not parallel with any principal plane (Front, Right, Top), but is perpendicular to Top.


To be precise, the plane is created using a sketch tool called "Plane" and is not an reference geometry in the assembly.


When I try to dimension a oblique line using smart dimension tool, the dimension is forced into horizontal or vertical when I place it, although it is an aligned dimension before I place it.


So I'm not able to add an aligned dimension to this line. Please help!!
