It was probably just the way the document is viewed. Close it and then re-open and it should appear correctly once more. You can also change it back via the View menu bar.

Here's the workaround I found:

 

View > Rotate View > select Clockwise or Counterclockwise to rotate the document whichever way you want

 

File > Print > select Microsoft Print to PDF from the Printer pulldown menu and uncheck Choose paper source by PDF page size under the Page Sizing & Handling section > Print

 

When the Save Print Output As screen appears rename the file and click Save
