Allow tangent constraint to flip

Allow tangent constraint to flip

Currently, when a user tries to assemble a bolt, insert, pin, etc. to a hole perpendicular to a cylindrical surface, the fastener or component is flipped the wrong way.  The "flip" button is grayed out so there is no way to easily fix the constraints except by using PTC's recommended workaround here: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS40703&art_lang=en&posno=1&q=FLIP%20TANGEN...

PTC please add the ability to flip the tangent constraint so that components can be easily assembled correctly without having to use a wonky workaround.
