Trouble with type showing sideways

Hi, I have an iPad 3rd gen and I just downloaded the update for the adobe reader.  I'm excited that you guys added the type in boxes because our school system requires that we turn in data online via PDF forms.  However, when I try to type into the boxes all of my text is sideways regardless of screen orientation.  Is this an issue of formatting on the original document (which was only created a few months ago), an issue with the app, or user error?

    Hi Kinderpond - Would it be possible to share the PDF you are filling? I will send you my email by private message. Thanks!

    The original blank form would work great, but unfortunately it didn't stay attached to this forum post. Can you email it directly to

    Kinderpond, thank you very much for reporting the issue. We believe we have a bug in how we render some PDF forms that are oriented in a landscape layout. We are working on the problem. I can't promise a timeline yet =).
