Dimensions are flipping from negative to positive when I change configurations.

Hi All,

 

I have a part with two configurations. In it are some dimensioned features (a sketch with a simple linear dimention, a plane offset from another plane, etc).

 

When I switch from one configuration to another, the sketch dimension "flips". It's value doesn't change, but say it's a line 1mm to the left of something, it flips to 1mm to thr right of something.

 

Similar thing happens to the planes (ie Plane B was 10mm above Plane A, but flips to 10mm below Plane A when I switch configurations).

 

Also same thing happens to a simple extruded body (extrudes one way in one config, extrudes the opposite in the other.)

 

So frustrating!

 

Has anyone else encountered this, and if so, are there any work-arounds?

 

Thanks!
