Why does Solidworks choose angular dimensions when I want length?

Sometimes Solidworks will dimension with an angle instead of giving length. I thought maybe something didn't line up perfectly, but that's not the case. It shows the center of two holes are 180 degrees apart.

 

How do I force it to dimension length? I use smart dimensioning, but even when I choose vertical dimension, it still shows an angle.

 

Thank you.
