Mate needs to change direction in different configs

Hi all:

I have an assembly with two configurations. Two components are mated with a distance mate. The distance and direction of the mate must change bewteen the two configurations. I know how to set the distance value to be different in each configuration, but can't figure out how to switch the direction.

Right now, I work around it by using two different mates, with only one resolved per configuration. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance,
John.
