Dimension Text Orientation in Part/Assy

Now either I wasn't paying attention the past 7 years or something has really got hosed with the dimension text display in 2014.


Viewed in one orientation, the dimension text displays normally.  Rotate the model 90° and it's like the text origin rotates 90° around where it should be but without rotating the text, altering the leader tails, or correcting the space between the dimension lines.  Radius dimension text rotates on top of itself and turns into spaghetti noodles.  See the attached picture.


I started at a new company a few months ago.  Is this a setting in their templates that could cause this behavior?  I never noticed this in previous versions of the software.


I'm running SolidWorks 2014 SP2.0.  Video card = AMD FirePro V4900.
