Dimensions show as Mirror image

Using TC 20 Pro.   When dimensioning a detail part the dimension numbers show up as mirror image.  A few minutes before drawing the part in question another part was detailed and the dimensions are fine.  Obviously I've done something wrong/clicked the wrong icon, whatever, incorrectly...but how can I get the dimensions to show correctly?

This is a workplane issue.
If you are drawing in 2d  try selecting the objects, switching to world work plane and "place on workplane".
If this is 3d and you want to dimension in another plane, I find that the "plane by facet tool " will usually do this
 Using "workplane by 3 points"  gives more predictable results - because you have more control.
The positive X direction needs to go in the direction you would read the text and the Positive Y direction needs to go towards the top of the text.
