2D ST7 - Dimensions don't rotate with attached objects

I'm just an occasional user of the 2D version.

 

If I rotate, for example, a rectangle including the dimensions for length and width, the dimensions do not rotate, the horizontal dimension stays horizontal while the line it is attached to is now vertical, and the vertical dimension stays vertical while the line it is attached to is now horizontal, and so both dimensions now have values of zero.

Hi there,

 

This is the nature of the dimension orientation style "Horizontal/Vertical" applied.....had you used either of the 2 others, then they would follow the geometry when rotated.

Thank you. That does the trick. This setting is not in the properties dialog.
