Weird results when inserting objects into a dwg

So I have this drawing that is acting very suspiciously and I am confused and at my wits end with it. I received a mid day "push" from our IT dept while working in this drawing and it hasn't been the same since. I really think that may be the culprit. But just in case.....

 

While in model space anything I insert, copy/paste or bring into model space looks squashed compared to the original data. It's like the Z axis is rotated. As it sits all the original data in model space looks fine or "flat" as it should.

 

When measuring the inserted squashed object it's giving me the correct dims but because it's squashed 18" looks like 12", if that makes any sense. Also if I copy/paste the original data in model space into another new template it then looks squashed.

 

Is there a system variable or setting just for that dwg that could have been changed? I've searched and searched and can't find anything that helps. To recreate this dwg would take days if not longer.

 

If you need more details just ask away and I'll do my best to supply them.

 

Thank you
