Negative Bend Angle in Draft Environment

Is there a reason I'm getting a negative angle (-) when placing a dimension with the property text shown?....I know it's down...but we just upgraded from ST4 to ST8 (MP4) and ST4 didn't add the negative sign.

Is this for a flat pattern?

Yes, on a draft

It could be that Solid Edge is determing the bend directions and is calling them out based on the info in the flat pattern.

I kinda figured that much, but is there a way to get rid of it?

My prints are using %BN for the angle, and not giving a negative number.
