Does anyone know why applying a parameter label to an angular dimension would suddenly flip and/or move the object I'm trying to rotate? I can rotate the object manually about a point and everything looks good, but as soon as I label the dimension "Angle", Revit flips the object (usually 180°Winking and sometimes moves it off to the side from the center point. This is in a generic annotation family in RS2012. Thanks everybody.

Try tying the angle parameter to a reference line (not reference plane) instead of the object. you can use the align tool to lock the end of the ref line to the intersection of a couple of ref planes. I've still seen it try to rotate the line 180° (Revit seems to like angle parameters to be in certain places for some reason), but that is a problem that can be dealt with by either just using Revit's 0° direction or creating a new parameter that adds 180°.

Yeah, this was a detail group with a reference line embedded in it that I was dimensioning to, to try to force the object to rotate with the reference line. Would that be the best way to get a bunch of lines to act as one object for manipulating together with rotations, offsets, etc?

A detail group might work, but I wouldn't make the ref line part of the group. The best route I have found for rotating objects is to make everything that needs to rotate a nested family. In your case it sounds like you might just be rotating symbolic lines, so I would try making them in a detail component and nesting that in your main family. Then lock that to your ref line.

also, align and constrain your nested family AFTER adding the angular paramter to the ref plane/reference line.
