180 degree panic

Does anyone know why solidworks would automatically add 180 degrees to the angles I tell an arc to be?

It seems to hapen every time I try to set an arc angle- if I set it to 20 degrees, it becomes 200, if I set it to 80, it becomes 260. I can get it to angle I need if I type it in again, but I don't see why solidworks would change angles automatically like this. It's been getting really annoying when it merges endpoints 180 degrees away from where i wanted the arc to end, and i need to delete the line and work around about 5 steps to eventually get it to where I need it.

Is this just a glitch, or is there an option somewhere to turn this off? If this is an intended feature, what is its purpose?
