Bevel gear CAD help requested

I am trying to use bevel gears in CAD, specifically 217-3344 from Vex Robotics. When I look at the drawing it shows how the two gears are positioned in relation to each other. My issue is I can see the distance vertically (from the centre of one to the bottom of the other) but I don’t see a distance horizontally. Am I missing something? I have reviewed other techniques (finding the apex and using that) and think I have the gears properly positioned but would appreciate any words or wisdom from others who have worked with bevel gears.

Those are miter gears, so they’re identical. Horizontal and vertical spacing will be the same.
