How can I alter/set a Tangent constraint's direction?

After having applied a Tangent constraint to a rounded element, the rounded element now spans rather 270° than 90° (see upper circle in the image on the left). Moreover, the circle has automatically been moved outside the rectangle element by SolidWorks.


I'd like to create a rounded corner and, so, have the rounded element being 90°, not 270° (like seen at the lower circle in the image on the left).


Currently, I don't seem to be able to fix this situation by removing an re-applying the Tangent constraint, even after shifting the vertical line or circle depicted in the example before re-applying the Tangent constraint.


How can I deliberately alter/set the enforced tangential direction of a tantent constraint?
