It’s good to know I’m not crazy.

And there’s no way to change the angle of the entry at placement time. There is no hotkey entry for that option, and the only way I can see to change it is to place the entry, get out of the place mode, right-click select then entry and then choose “set bus entry shape” from the context menu, and them move the entry to where you actually want it.
