Dimension orientation in annotation view

Question asked by Sergio Monti on Dec 12, 2018

I want to show some dimensions on an assembly model. Then I create a new 'Top' Annotation View with the standard orientation as shown below.


I want to show the width of the bottom plate. I make sure the 'Top' annotation view is active, so I expect the dimension to lay horizontal, parallel to the annotation view but it doesn't. It comes vertical instead.


I have to select the two side lines to get the orientation I want, as shown below.



What is the purpose of the orientation of the annotation view? Is it not meant to be as I expect?
