I have to admit that this problem almost made me abandon Fusion 360. I felt like i had tried everything, but nothing worked.
Now that i have found a VERY simple solution i feel really stupid.

The solution has to do with what plane you place your model on, and now that i now this its so glaringly obvious.
See the following image:

To avoid this error i always put the model on the X-Y plane. Logically it makes perfect sense, but when the grid is sideways it just looks wrong. Before i would choose the z-x plane and i thought i could just assign a new coordinate system, but this didn`t work.

So in the beginning of every sketch i now select the plane that is highlighted in the image.
