Fix X-axis direction? Linear Sketch Pattern

So I was reading the What'sNew2018 PDF, and came across this "Fix X-axis direction" thing.

'What does that mean?' I thought, 'Rotation of sketch instances? Why would my linear pattern instances rotate?'

After reading the Help File I still don't know. Can individual instances of the linear pattern rotate? I don't see a setting for that.

 

 

This seems like an option you would want in Circular Sketch Pattern... so the thing does not rotate?

But that is not an option??

 

This is the end result I expect from "Fix X-axis direction"... but in Circular Sketch Pattern...

No need for it in Linear Sketch Pattern...

Am I no seeing something? Am I missing a clear function and use for fixing linear instances so they do not rotate in a linear pattern?
