I think you must delete the section view.

Right click on the base view and Rotate.

Recreate the section view.

 

But try this first.

Right click and Rotate the base view.

Edit the sketch for the section line and Show All Constraints.

Delete the vertical constraint and add Horizontal Constraint.
Exit sketch.

Right click on your base view and choose Rotate, select Clockwise direction and Relative Angle of 90°.  This will rotate the base view but leave the section still to the right.  Then right click on the section line and choose Edit.  This puts you in sketch mode, where you can unconstrain and re-constrain the section line to the orientation that you wish (horizontal).  Then reposition the section view to the proper location.

 

If this isn't clear, post your part and drawing and I'll show you.

The text size is controlled by the text style.  Notice in your Capture2 image that the text size you have circled is for tolerance text, not the main dimension text.  The main dimension text size is set by the Primary Text Style, Note Text (ISO) in your case.  So, you can either modify Note Text (ISO), or create a new style and make that whatever you wish.

It was selected for tolerance by default but keeps also main dimension style simmilar for tolerance which I need.. probably it can be set different. My worry is : what are those "Method" ISO out there? Which one I should check for edit? Haven't tried to edit styles since installing inventor pro 2013...

The one to edit is the one that is used by the dimensions you wish to change.  Select the dimension whose size you wish to change, then look at the Annotate tab > Format panel > Style.  This is the Style that you need to edit, or perhaps you just want to select a different style from that list?

I've uploaded the .idw.. all dimensions are under "Default (ISO).. hope you can correct my drawing (if needed) and decrease a little bit more the dimension for all text..to fit better. Thanks a lot!

Right click on any dimension, and select Edit Dimension Style...  The Style and Standard Editor will open with the Default (ISO) dimension style displayed.  On the Text tab, you will see that the text style for this dimension style is "Note Text (ISO)".  On the left side, click to expand the Text section, then select Note Text (ISO), which will display.  Change the text size, for example to 2.50, save.  All text in that style will be updated.

Thanks a lot for your quick support. I have a final small question.. is there any way to render a section-view like this? I know in previous versions of Inventor was almost impossible but 2013 changes any rule around this? Or if I can export a section-view and render it with.. 3Ds max or something..
