Acrobat Form Fields are being rotated when copy/paste from old version of the form to the new version of the form

Greetings;

I have a number of Acrobat PDF Forms which can be filled out and submitted via web page by our end users.  We have made significant changes to some of the forms and rather than recreate all of the form fields on the updated version of the form, we normally simply copy from the old form and paste into the new form, then make positioning adjustments, add any new fields, remove old fields, etc.

Currently I have a form that when I copy the fields from the old version to the new version, their dimensions are switched.  Their height is now their width and vice versa.  It seems to me as if this is a rotation/page orientation problem, but I cannot figure it out.  I don't want to have to manually resize all of these fields, unless that is my only option.
I have attached images that show the fields as they exist in the old version and then what it does when I paste them into the new version.

Unfortunately, time is critical with this project as these new forms are already nearly 2 months late in going live into our system.  Any help will be greatly appreciated, even if you just tell me that I am out of luck and have to manually resize them all after copying them over.

Thank you.

I found that if I opened the new form in Acrobat and then did a print to Acrobat PDF, the resultant file, regardless of whether I printed in Portrait or Landscape, would accept the fields pasted into it without error.
