How to dimension angles at corners ?

I prefer "show model annotations" for dimensions. Sometimes pro/e shows the dimensions opposite sides. Then i have to do it manually. I have difficulties while dimensioning angles at corners.

 

1- How can you dimension this angle manually ?

2- And how can you change the side for automatic dimensioning "show model annotations" ?

When you create your angle dimension in the sketch (model), it is based on your placement pick when you create it. If you didn't get what you want, try recreating the dimension and placing it in a different quadrant.

The images in the post are hard to understand because you can't tell what is being dimensioned.

Normally, if your 45 degree dimension shows up on the wrong side, you simply drag it do the other side and it flips. In the images, the dimension is in a quadrant that is completely wrong so it can't just be dragged to the correct one, it would have to be recreated using care to pick in the correct quadrant when placing the dimension.
