Aligned dimensions with non-orthogonal corners

Does anyone know why aligned dimensions won't work with the entire walls option when the selected wall and either adjacent wall meet at a non 90 degree corner?  Seems screwy (non-intuitive) to me.

Revit typically has a difficult time with unusual angles, with "unusual angles" defined as anything but 90°. Refer to >this thread< for some elaboration.

Thanks,

 

That's what I was afraid of.  How long has revit been around?  Have only a few requested it?  Seems like a rather big hole in the capabilities regarding both temporary and permanent dimensions.
