First Assembly Tutorial

I am on the first assembly tutorial.  I am trying to mate the two parts.  I have one of them drawn in the wrong direction, "Tutor1" is facing one way, and "Tutor2" is facing opposite as it should.

 

How do I fix this?

 

"Move with Triad" is not precise, and I don't see how I can ever completely match one surface with another with this function if I am making an assembly with a bunch of parts that need to be put in at odd angles.

 

Furthermore, trying repeatedly to make it work with that insufficient function, it no longer shows up when I right click.  Why does it no longer show up?  It was there, now it is not.  Having to close and reopen, or recreate files, is not an acceptable solution to every problem encountered when drafting.  There needs to be something better.  Is there?
