That certainly does help the user to correct the problem after it occurs, JD, thanks. And I am certainly thankful for Inventor's many helpful features.
Currently to mitigate this I just click the "rotation" box in the text editor dialog box and try to remember the sketch's CS orientation so I get the right result.
Pretty ironic when you're enabling a feature (look at sketch) in order to draw hieghtened attention to a broken feature (funky sketch CS orientation) so that you can manually correct the problem yourself through trial and error (vert/horiz constraints).
I guess nobody has came up with a fix yet. Please look into this it is very annoying. I can't think of any reason to rotate 180 when going into a sketch. This is something that should have been taken care of before it was sent out.

it looks like they are at least looking at the issue as it says accepted, but I doubt we will see any fix for it until release 2015. Since 2014 was probably in the works already when it was added to ideastation.

I had the same problem and I'm using Autodesk Inventor 2013 Pro.
You could edit coordinate system when you're within sketch mode to interchange x and y axis orientations.
I don't know if this option is available in 2012 but if it is, try it and tell me if it worked.
It did work for me.

Wow! All this time I thought I had to exit the sketch and right-click on it in order to edit the coordinate system. I didn't know I could do it right in the sketch! I'm glad I read this thread today.
And it does work in 2012, by the way.
