Piping - Moving pipe segments

I would like to know if it's possible to adjust the angles of the "legs" used when you insert break points in a segment of pipe, then move that pipe segment.  It seems to only use 90 degree bends even if the line stock specifies only 45 degrees as a bend angle.

Here's a basic pipe run I made this as a quick example...

Step 1

Add 2 break points to the 120" segment, 24" from each end.

Step 2

Use the Move Segment command to move the new segment by 12"

Step 3

After completing the command double click the 12" segment (what I referred to above as the "legs") created.  Notice there are no angular adjustments possible...only bend radius and the length can be adjusted.

Step 4

Try not to freak out when you realize there's no way to get that 12" segment to use bend angles other than 90 degrees

Does ANYONE know of a way to add an offset to an existing pipe segment that will allow you to adjust the angle of the legs?
