Automatic text label placement on weld symbols - can they be moved?

Good morning all,

It appears on my SW2015 version that when placing weld symbols on my drawings that the text labels on the symbol cannot be moved freely to make the drawing look a bit cleaner?  See below snips for an example.  I must keep the weld bevel groove angle blank on my weld symbol designation and then add a note to the drawing and move it into place to make the symbol look proper, otherwise the angle text is too far away from the bevel groove symbol (this is just an example of what I came across yesterday, I don't usually use weld symbols on my drawings).  Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated as I may be missing a setting here.  Thanks in advance.


This is the way the unmodified symbol appears: (angle text too far down and away from symbol in my opinion)



This is with the weld symbol angle left blank in the dialog box and manually add a note to drawing with degree symbol and drop in place:
