Hi Alois / Jeff
Good to hear from you again.
The angle going across your body can be awkward. The main thing is to make sure that you get close to the ball. I like to think about getting the ball close to the ball when hitting the shot whether it is long, short or even half long.
Then think about turning your hand back so that you get the correct angle on your racket to get the ball straight on the table. Then push your bat forward through the contact whether it is for a push, flick or topspin.
If you feel comfortable with the backhand sidespin flick then utilise it more. It is an effective stroke when used well.
