Component Orientation? Answered

I'm unsure how to read the cad drawings as far as the orientation of the parts goes. In my drawing I'm using an RJ11 jack and a 2mm DC barrel jack for power. I'm unsure if I have them facing the correct direction (outward).

Typically with jacks the side without any pins is the front and this can sometimes even hang over the edge of the board a little (depending on the type of jack and your inclination).

The RJ11 jack has even labeled that size "in", albeit not remarkably clearly.

Thanks! The "In" marking is the value I gave it, I have an RJ11 input & RJ11 output.
