Part file upside down from assembly; how to rotate

I have created an assembly and made the sub-assembies and parts in-context.  After saving the part external to the assembly, I open the part file to add the dimensions I want to show in the detail drawings of the parts.


The model in the part file is upside down from the orientation in the assembly.  The part is rotated 180° about the X axis.  I realize that it's still the part, but it becomes confusing when you look one spot and then another for the same part and it's not orientated the same.  I'm concerned that the view on the drawing will be the same as the part.


How do I change the orientation in the part file to match the assembly file?
