PDF Printing Issue - Drawing Rotation

I'm going to try and explain this the best I can.

 

We recently upgraded computers and upgraded to autocad LT 2012.  We used to use autocad LT 2011.  With the only system I used acrobat X standard to print pdf's.  I'm using the same program with the new system/version of autocad.

 

It used to be that when I was at the standard autocad plot dialog box under "Drawing Orientation" I could select Portrait or Landscape.  When I did the is the litte prview box with the paper size would rotate and the drawing rotate with it.  So if I changed the orientation to landscape the drawing would plot to pdf correctly.

 

Now when I change the orientation the paper changes in the preview but the actual drawing doesn't rotate to fit the page orientation.  I'm not sure if that makes sense or not.

Are you sure 2011 did not have a custom PC3 file that you need to copy over and use in 2012?

I'm fairly certain there wasn't one.  The only person in the office that could do thta is me, and I don't ever remember doing it.
