Dimension Text Rotation

Hello everyone,

 

I've come across a problem I haven't had to deal with before.  In a drawing I am working on, all of my dimensions are coming out rotated at odd angles.  This rotation doesn't seem to be controlled by any dimension style, since the angle that each dimension is at is inconsistent.

Sorry for asking such a simple question.  I've had a look around the forums but can't seem to find anything related to this.  I am running Inventor 2014.  Thanks in advance.

Ah, I figured it out.  It turns out the front view on the assembly wasn't looking directly normal to the front face.  I reset the view and now I'm able to get proper dimensions again.
