dwg imports as orthogonal view

Question

I have successfully imported several drawings from our client however I am having problems with one particular file. In the viewport on the main sheet, the object appears to be shown in what should be plan view but the view option is actually set to custom. When I try to edit the object on the design layer it is shown as though it has been rotated in 3D space even though it is a 2D drawing. Is this some sort of import error or could this be due to the original file being exported while the object was in an orthogonal view or possibly something else?

If you want everything as 2D, reimport the file and use "Import 2D only" - this will convert everything to 2D data.

If the file came from AutoCAD, some objects may have been created in 3D even though they were intending the drawing to be 2D only.
