We are using AutoCAD 2009 and I have the latest update as well (windows xp machine, if that matters). The problem is that when we plot to a multi-sheet dwf file (from a sheet set) there are a few lines of text that are rotated 90 degrees inside our title block in AutoCAD that appear rotated 0 degrees in the dwf.
I haven't figured out why because for one, it's inconsistent. We don't use title block xref's, but I do copy the title block from one drawing file to all the others and on the dwf file the text is rotated to 0 only on some of the sheets. I've attached an example. The issue is located in the upper right corner of the title block.
FA-002, FA-101, FA-201 are wrong, FA-501 is correct.
Thanks, and let me know if you need any additional info.

I just found this group, I originally posted to the print-plot group.
I am also having the same problem:
I have a drawing with several layouts, the titleblock is a block, text
in the titleblock is rotated 90 (date, designed by, etc.) When
publishing from SSM to a DWFx file, on some sheets this text is rotated
to 0, some sheets it's correct. In the options, publishing is set to
background. If I plot each individually, the text is rotated correctly
at 90. Any ideas?

I don't know if this will help you, but I did find a solution that seemed to work for us.
The problem seemed to stem from the fact that all the text that was being rotated incorrectly on the dwf was multiline text. On a whim, I exploded it to single line and retried it. It seems to have worked ever since.
If the text that's being rotated on your end happens to be multiline, explode it and see if that doesn't correct it. I don't have any idea why it worked, but it did. Maybe Autodesk is aware of it, maybe they aren't, but if it's a widespread problem I hope it's something they can correct.
I am having this same issue. I just updated my AutoCAD 2009 Architectural to Version 4 and I am still having this problem. My title block is an x-ref and when I publish multiple pages the majority of them have most of the title block text rotated. The thing that gets me is 1 or 2 of the sheets will be fine and some will only have a few lines of text rotated. Since they all reference the same title block dwg I'm not sure what the problem could be. The text is a mix of multi-line and single line text. I tried exploding it to no avail. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I was having the same issues too w/ C3D 2010 & it was very frustrating. It seemed that the text styles using True Type fonts are the only ones affected with this bug...text styles using shx on the other hand are unaffected. Per suggestions from this post, explode the text. I can't explode these text since they're Field attributes. I did it anyway (burst), but it still rendered same problem. I had to resort to modifying our standard titleblock's text style to shx & that seemed to work. Hope this helps.
