Crop overlay aspect ratio - wrong orientations

When cropping images I use the 7x5 overlay and show 5x4 and 3x2 at the same time.
For years, these addition overlays have been the same orientation as the original but I have noticed that now they are thw wrong orientation. I dont know when this started. I do have a new installation so maybe I have missed a preference setting somewhere.

Example: I edit a landscape image and ALL of the aspect ratio overlays are portrait.
Or, I edit a portrait image and ALL of the aspect ratio overlays are landscape

Have I missed a setting somewhere (I have looked) or is this a bug. I am using LR-CC 10.4 on Windows 10   (all components up to date as of the date of this post)

Found it - SHIFT+O will toggle between orientations.  🙂

Aspect ratios are not orientation specific, 2:1 = 1:2 = 1:0.5 = 1000:500 = 1200:2400.

X key shortcut is another way to flip the crop's orientation for a given image.

Richard, I found my answer - SHIFT+O will toggle the overlays. When using the aspect ratio overlays, they toggle between landscape and portrait.
So, now when I'm editing a 7x5 crop in portrait orientation, the overlays are also in portrait orientation and not landscape.
