The obround shape is the Inspection designator, not the Basic.
Select the dimension
In the Tolereance/Position dropdown of the Dimension Manager, select Basic
Click an open area of the graphics screen to accept and close the Dimension Manager.
The colour is grey probably because the dimensions have been placed manually (driven) in the drawing. The colour can be changed in the Tools > Options > System Options > Color > Color scheme settings > Dimensions, Non Imported (Driven)
Also check whether those particular dimensions have been placed on a layer in the drawing.
Also check whether a layer has been assigned for angled and linear dimensions in Tools > Options > Document Properties > Dimensions
The dimensions are not assigned to any particular layer. Should I assign layers to them (what is recomended)? The 21.74 angular dimension is coming off a center line between the two holes that I added in drafting. Is this the correct way to dimension this? In NX or SDRC I would normally create a reference line between the two holes in the model and then use this reference line to dimension the two holes to Datum B.

Using layers is entirely a user or company preference. There is no right or wrong method. Some people swear by the use of layers ... I usually swear at them.

If the drawings are for manufacture, dimension to suit the process that will be used to create the holes. Will that process use the angle, or the ordinates of the holes?
